I was supposed to go, but my wife and daughter can't make it this year. I may NOT be able to escape since I have quite a few other shows this year.

The AAM is participating in a WWII encampment at Old Bethpage Village Restoration that weekend. I'll be playing with tanks and armored cars.

FYI- there's a B-2 flyover scheduled for the Preakness in Baltimore so I think there's
a pretty good chance Andrews might get a B-2 flyby sometime on Saturday also.:wink:

I'm thinking of going to the show this year, although Saturday only. It would be nice to see the B-2. last year I went to Ocean City just to see the B-2 and the Harrier. The B-2 only did two quick passes. With the length of the drive, I would probably leave Friday night sleep for a few hours and then catch the show. For the Ocean City show last year, we didi the Saturday show, leaving early Saturday morning, watching the show, and then headed home, which made for a very long day. I don't plan on doing that again anytime soon. On Sunday, drive by some of the sights and then head home as my boys have school the following day.


They finally updated their site to show the 2012 performers, although the full list still says coming soon.

You can always go to Reagan and Dulles and spot along with the show at Andrews!

The B-2 flyby is always 2 passes and 2 passes only. It's been a few years since an Andrews B-2 flyby. I'm planning on going down for the weekend.

Has anyone ever used their premium seating? It's sounds as though it is worth the expense with on base parking plus breakfast, lunch, and beverages included.

Thanks, I was unaware that it is always two passes. the announcer at the show had said that they would be doing three passes,but after the second one, he didn't turn around.

If it does, I will definitely be pissed that I was not able to make it down there this year....

I'm excited to see a B-2 for the first time.

Chris S
05-10-2012, 08:49 AM
Yeah, I'm keeping my fingers crossed they bring in a F-35B from PAX River for a flyby
to celebrate the Marines Centennial of Aviation also, and I'm also looking forward to
seeing the B-52 and a RARE appearance of NASA's Super Guppy on static display too !! :cool:

What a fun and exhausted day. Left Jersey at around 2am and backed home at around 11pm. Great show. Here are some of my pictures before I have to lie down and catch some sleep.

Nice meeting you! Also, nice meeting Enxian, if he's checking out the thread -- he was standing next to me for most of the show, and I had no idea he was a JFK spotter. At the end of the show, I found out the other person next to me lives in the next town over, and left at the same time I did (3:30am). Small world. Good seeing Fred, Chris, and anyone else I'm forgetting :biggrin: I haven't even looked at my photos yet.

BTW, I still can't believe they let the Air National Guard Jet Truck start it's morning run on Sat. right in front the Blue Angels on the Air show taxiway, where it was only about 75 ft. away from the parallel crowd line ?? Talk about INSANE !!! :eek:WTF??
I know Steve Holzinger was set up for a good view of it and I just hope he got decent video of it so everyone can see it !!

It was a great show, I just got home a few minutes ago. Today's trip took almost seven hours to get home from DC. Plus I had to stop by FRG even though I just saw the planes. I haven't looked through my images yet. Fred, great pictures, I've seen that jet truck up at Rhode Island in the past. but he didn't give it full burner up there, and yesterday he hit it almost right in front of me, wow, was that loud!

TJK, another tip. When you "QUOTE" someone's post, make sure NOT to do what you did above and not edit the quote... no need to re-port ALL images :-) Just leave the relevant text or links/images in your reply.

Please try to EDIT your post above and practice editing the quoted text. Take out all the images except the one you commented about :smile:

Cheers!
