Airshow Week!

The air show is this weekend, and the performers have started to drift in. Team Oracle was the first in, doing a practice run yesterday at lunch in miserable weather. Today they were moving some corporate jets from their usual parking places to spots away from the expected throngs of people who'll be wandering around on the tarmac. I also noticed that Blue Angel #7 was parked over at the ANG end of the field.

This year the show will have both the Blue Angels and the Canadian Forces Snow Birds. I was planning on going until I realized that my niece and nephew's graduation party (HS and 8th grade, resp.) is on Saturday, which means I ought to go to NJ. Bother.
