    F-18s just landed at FRG. Did a low pass, a touch-and-go, and a full-stop.

    Agreed, it was a great little show at KFRG courtesy of the Growlers! The touch-and-go's surprised me - a nice added bonus. Fingers crossed for great weather tomorrow and over the weekend!

    Yeah, the Growlers did a nice lil show for us at FRG this evening. BTW, I got to talk to "Chunk", the Growler pilot who gave me the info about their arrival time,
    and he told me the Growlers will departing FRG on Tues. morning around 11AM for those interested in seeing that too. Good hear the T-Birds will be flying
    at the beach tomorrow morning right away at 10AM and hopefully they'll be able to fly again at 2PM before the weather gets crappy.

    Question are they Growlers or Superhornets and how do you tell looking at the planes.
    I was there yesterday they gave a great little show at the airport.

    The ones at FRG right now are Growlers, and they are actually a specialized electronic warfare version of the 2 seat Super Hornet.
    One way you can tell them apart is that the Growler has large Wing tip pods that house electronic jamming receivers.

    Good morning, did the Thunderbirds put on a full show this morning? Or was it more of a testing out the space? Thanks for the feedback.

    Also, do we know for sure if they’re coming back at 2 PM?
