Wish I had seen this earlier. Next year, please post in advance. It would make for a nice A.Net meet.

Anyone know what happened with the T-Birds?? They started their performance, it lasted for about 5 minutes... then completely stopped for at least 15-20 minutes with the planes circling overhead. I would guess that another aircraft entered the airspace as it didn't look like anyone had a mechanical issue. BTW couldn't hear the announcer so he probably explained why....

Oh and WTF is up with the F-22?? No one standing around it at all so myself and someone else go to snap a shot of the engines/exhaust and no less than 5 CAP kids came running up to us telling us the plane is classified and pictures can only be taken by the side... They even made the other guy delete the pictures off his camera... It's not like this thing is a big secret anymore

#6 had a radar altimeter malfunction. Not sure if they got it cleared up, or they determined she could continue the show with the malfunction.

Will the T-birds be perfoming again today? If so, what time should I be there to see them? Thanks.
