    Go to the 110 side, and park by the actual terminal & walk up to the fence

    thanks so much! that's the spot :)

    btw, what time do you guys go there to see their start up ceremony? noted that on page 3 someone said at 1345 is the walk down, what does walk down mean exactly? should i get there couple hours earlier? don't want to miss them

    FYI - According to the AAM's event flyer the Museum will actually open at 10AM each day.

    Yeah, better get there early cause the terminal is going to be a very a popular place
    this whole weekend with ALOT of people trying to get up close to see the Blue Angels !
    The "walk down" is when the Blue Angel pilots actually line-up together and then they
    start to walk down the flight line in formation to each of their F-18 jets.

    Unfortunately, the F-22 didn't do a pass at Republic today.
    Hopefully it will do one tomorrow with the P-51 because
    the P-51 wasn't available to do the Heritage flight today.

    Well I can't make the show today because I have to man the store. I was planning to be closed tomorrow so I could make the show on Sunday like I normally do but it looks like it's going to be a washout.

    I would believe the F-22 (and Mustang) would do their fly-by over runway 1, so they can show to the crowd at the museum. The next guess is what time?

    How early is early? I was hoping to check out the aircraft near AAM first and then drive over to the terminal around 12. Does that sound too late to find a spot? Thanks!

    I was listening to the Tower after the F-22 was finished with his show. The KFRG controller thought and gave clearance for the F-22 and P-51 flyby. Then, said he wasn't coming due to low fuel as he headed back to ISP. Bummer. But the BA's gave a nice (standard) fly over for the crowd.

    Just wonder why the BA's didn't takeoff in formation. two days in a row they took off individually.

    So when I was at the beach in Thursday for circles and arrivals I heard on the scanner the Blue Angels, not sure pilots or guys at the comm cart talking about if the weather gets bad the May get stuck here and that it wouldn't be the worst thing to get stuck in the city. After checking the weather I guess they were referring to the weather at home because the West coast is on a tropical storm warning. Wonder how tomorrow will play out as far as their departure.

    That timing should work out for you to find spot at the Terminal on Sunday.

    Yeah, I was talking to Blue Angel #6 after the show today, when they were swapping out jets from Andrews,
    and he said with the pending Tropical storm down in the Gulf set to hit the Pensacola area soon they're going to
    stay over an extra day or two on Long Island before they head down to their next show at NAS Patuxent River.
