    That is the Thunderbirds. Lt. Col. Kevin Walsh currently flying the #1 jet for the Thunderbirds is from Levittown!

    FYI- They still have a broken jet down at Andrews so they flew in another F-18 up from Pensacola
    today around 12:30. The #7 jet was put into the Hangar this afternoon so that they could do
    an engine change on it and after that was completed it went up for a test flight around 7:30
    this evening and returned just after 8PM. So right now it looks like they have 6 jets and a
    spare #7 ready to go for tomorrow morning for the USNA Graduation Flyover in Annapolis
    and the Media Flights. Let's just hope they have better luck with ALL the jets tomorrow!!

    Also. AAM's new P-51 Mustang finally arrived just after 4PM and the Corsair came in this evening also,
    but right now that was being kept over on the southside of the Sheltair Hangar.

    The Blue Angels are due over the USNA Graduation tomorrow morning at 10:04AM so I'd look for an 8:45Am-9:00AM departure from KFRG

    @fk6065: Good Morning Fred, as a fellow Smugmugger is there a way to post an image from a Smugmug gallery to this site? I tried embedding a direct link to an image using the IMG tag, but no success. Any help is most appreciative. Tnx!!

    This the link I used in an earlier post with [IMG][/IMG]

    Very cool photo!
    No idea why the site isn't embedding the photo. Just tried to embed one of my own, using a Dropbox link, and that too, did not work! Oh well...

    A few questions from me:

    1. Do we know if the forecast threatens to change things around tomorrow (thunderstorms around 2pm)?

    2. Do we know if the Spitfire will be flying? Last I heard it was neither confirmed nor denied.

    3. I know it's anybody's guess whether the F-22s will do a pass at FRG, but is there a general inkling?

    4. What time does AAM open tomorrow? I don't mind getting there unreasonably early to get a good spot on the flight line, but want to make sure I show up when I should!

    5. Will they let me in with a folding chair and a small cooler full of water bottles?

    Per a post on the AAM Facebook page, the Spitfire will not attend the air show this weekend due to "an operational issue".
