A few from today's practice. The Growlers did a couple passes, the Legacy Flight w/ Korean War Hero, then a few more passes. It seemed like one did a touch and go (couldn't see exactly from where I was), so I hope they continue to do that this weekend. The Viper Demo wasn't in the "Venom" paint scheme. Hopefully, Venom flies this weekend.

Was outside the airport today. Blue Angels started with all 6 planes. Part way through, #5 landed. At some point, #7 took off and joined the show. FYI, 'Bert didn't fly today, so I assume it still isn't certified. Edit: added a few pics from today. C-2 Greyhound, L-39, Growler, and a couple from the Blue Angels.

I was at the show. #5 did indeed land about 1/3 through the performance. #7 took off and did one pass with #6 then #6 landed. They finished off with 5 plane modified delta. They do it so professionally that many didn't even notice what happened. Great weather, great show.

Thanks for that info. 5 had an engine problem. We are at the show today. Bert took off when we were coming in and returned a bit later with a replacement engine for #5. We'll see if they fly 5 or 6 Blue Angeld today. Fingers crossed for all 6.

Loved seeing the Growlers do three high speed passes. Some sweet vapes. Hope some photos turned out.

Here are a few from today. Growlers got some vapes on high speed passes. All 6 Blue Angels performed the whole show, so that was a positive. The crowd seemed to like all the acts. It was a great time today, but I'm very tired after this weekend. More pics to follow.

And a few more from Sunday's show. The bad news for me is that my airshow days are now over until the Fall with the Sanford/Orlando show (maybe) and Stuart (most likely). Of course, I'd rather not be at an airshow in Florida during the heat of the Summer.
