I hope they will be here this fall. There is usually a nice airshow here in Millington late August/early September. They were MIA last year because of the sequester.

I saw Fat Albert while we were driving to get parked. Didn't know what it was called though.

Living near DC for a few years, went to the air show at Andrews every year for Armed Forces Day. Saw both the Tbirds and the BA. If you've never seen either one, they are definitely worth going to see.

If you like the Blue Angels now, you should have seen them when they were still flying A-4's. Much tighter turns, better performance in maneuvers, they did a lot of stuff the F-18's can't even dream about.


What aircraft did they fly in the mid '80's.
Too young at the time to notice.


A-4

A-4's at least until 85 or 86, can't say when they changed. The next time I saw them fly was in Hawai'i in the 90s and they were flying the F-18s.

I saw them in Virginia Beach a couple years ago. I don't know if they do the same show over land as they did over water but it was pretty awesome.
