Only 2 FA18s and over so fast was still getting into position…
Bit disappointed actually.

Anyone score any video of the F18 or Roulettes? I found this video from a couple of years ago – pretty cool.

And probably spent more on fuel doing it than I make in a year…
But I’ll be out there watching tomorrow!

Last year a solo Hornet flew through and was gone in 30 seconds!

I wouldn’t mind seeing those F/A-18’s. I’ll miss the roulettes as I’ll be at Bid Day Out. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks Kramer for the heads up. Wouldn’t want to miss a view of fast movers…

“Did anyone else read Airforce Aerobics ?

I had to slow my heart down at the thought of scantily uniform clad flexible women.”

And carrying firearms. 🙂

Be still my beating heart

Don’t get too excited: Swan will probably ban this as part of his plan to rein in inflation!
