    BTW, who ever flew the AAM's B-25 over the beach today did a GREAT job, but did anyone notice the
    the tacky Hulu advertisement on the top side of the B-25 saying "Catch-22" on the top of each wing
    and "Now streaming on Hulu" on the top side of it's fuselage also !! Geez !!

    Wow, that IS tacky, and totally ruins the illusion! I know they need to get some extra advertising dollars, but there has to be a better solution... placards INSIDE when touring at the museum(s), or even pulling a streamer behind would me MUCH better.

    I saw that yesterday and couldn't make out what it read. Sad but i guess if that's what it takes to keep the bird flying...

    Can anyone confirm was that a low show the Thunderbirds flew yesterday? Loved the 3 sneak passes but aside from that wasn't impressed.

    Hello all! I was at the show today and stayed after about 40ish minutes from when the T-Birds concluded. Looking East I noticed something like 8-12 airplanes far in the distance and saw a few puffs of airshow smoke, was this some photo op or something?

    At Republic Airport around 3PM the AAM launched about 15 warbirds that included the Zero, 2 Mustangs, Corsair, Avenger, B-25, C-47 and at least 8 more visiting T-6 / SNJs !!! They all headed south and then just before 4PM they all cameback from the north in sections of 3 doing flyovers first and then break to land passes and it was just AMAZING to see that many warbirds up in the air at once !! Great job by the AAM and all the visiting civiilan pilots who were flying the other Texans also !!

    There's 2 Super Hornets at FRG and the one they used in the demo today took off about 11:15 on RWY 32.

    It wasn't just the top, it was every side of the fuselage, and the wings...beautiful airplane with an advertisement plastered on it. I would have preferred them having it just on one side, to give those of us the opportunity to view the plane in it's original glory without the ad at least on a few passes. I immediately thought of a Christmas story when he gets the decoder..."A crumby commercial"

    Yeah, I noticed it was all over the aircraft when I went through more of my photos!!
    I agree, and I can't believe they even covered OVER part of the B-25's side "Star and Bar" logo also !! WTF !!!!
    Like Bill mentioned, I would have rather seen a banner plane pulling a "Catch-22" banner advertisement
    flown before and after the show instead of disgracing a warbird like that!!
