Fred, where did you hear that info, and did they all depart tonight ?? Because the last I heard from rkfast who talked to a Snowbird Team member down at the Beach on Friday was that they weren't scheduled to depart until Tues. morning ??

I personally saw #7 depart this afternoon... maximum performance takeoff ;-)

BA 1-6 were sitting when I left and #1 had engines covered as if it would sit for the night. #5 had the left wheel replaced while the pilots signed autographs!

All Blues are Gone. I got video of the departure sometime after 6 pm. Snowbirds had covers over the fronts of each aircraft when I departed. I would say its a safe bet they were staying at least for one more night.

That must have been the one I saw over by the tree line around 3:30PM.

This whole week has been a real clusterf*** spotting military aircraft at FRG for me, so why should it end now ??!!:wink: Anyway, I'll try again to catch the Prowler's departure in the morning. BTW, any word about what time ??

I guess once they figure out what's wrong and how to fix it...

For most of the morning they had the Prowler hooked up to some large machine that was trailered over from the main terminal and that seemed to be there area of concentration. Then the GPU problem. Finally they dropped the canopy and started to taxi out when their flight was cancelled due to their route not being approved due to severe weather.

Rumour atthe fence from the crew was anytime tomorrow morning after 6:00AM
