That’s awesome. We are headed to the air show tomorrow. Saw the Blue Angels last time they were in town. Always a great show.

I go to Fort Pickens National Park in Pensacola, Fla for 2 weeks during late June and early July every year, which is where the Angels are stationed. Common to see them practicing and flying over the beach there.

I am right next door to the airport.
I wished they would land, the police have all the roads blocked and I can't get to Arbys for lunch.

I have been trying to get pics of them flying by my office window, they are harder to hit than a dove with a 30mph tail wind, lol.

My pardner in crime and No1 sidekick SSGT Angie Scarborough will be there this weekend with her Texas State Guard recruiting station set up and taking prospects. Anybody that is interested in joining the state guard go by and check in with her. She is the director of recruiting for this area.

If you saw any of the Tora Tora Tora reenactment, it is my FIL who announces it...I know he's out of town on a show but not sure where.

You need to come out to the ranch when Richard is there this season...he absolutely loves talking about it. The names / connections would be quite considerable between the two of you.

Used to go to air shows with my brother a lot. He was at the races in Reno when the P51 nosed in full speed. Hit 100' from where he was sitting. Says to this day he doesn't know how lots of people were not killed. He broke ribs from ducking as he watched it come right at them and diving in the seats. Cant get him to go, but he flies RC all the time.
