    I've been hearing some speculation that the A-10 could be making an appearance at this year's air show being that ACC has reinstated the demo. What is everyone's thoughts?

    Sucks that the A-10 demo is booked that weekend the AMM said on their Facebook that they are looking to have A-10 there at some point. No details as to what that meant.

    I know this has been discussed in years past but is there any sort of viewing area at ISP to watch the f22 come in, take off or to photograph while parked? When I went to ISP last year to watch the thunderbirds come in I was not bothered by anyone. Also does anyone have the correct scanner frequency for ISP?

    Maybe they are relaxing a bit? But I know they had a specific area to watch the Thunderbirds with people patrolling Lakeland kicking people out

    Any Schedule yet as to when any of the Angles team will be arriving at FRG? Isn't this around the time when the Advance team drops & installs the Arresting gear?

    Arresting gear gets installed maybe a few days before #7's arrival. Maybe the weekend before. Blues likely in Thursday morning with #7 Wednesday late afternoon/evening. Shame no Fat Albert or even an Ernie this year..

    So they will use a generic military C-130 to move their equipment?
    And as in the past the Blues will they head to Annapolis on Friday morning for the Naval Academy Gradution?

    No - their aircraft, along with all other C-130T models, were grounded following the crash of a T-model in Mississippi last year. The team was working on acquiring a new J-model. Right now, given the high operational needs of the Navy, there are no J-models available, and the Navy is looking to acquire a surplus Royal Air Force J-model from storage.
