Barring any weather issues, the Blues are scheduled to fly their Pensacola Beach show day after tomorrow. I am assuming it starts at 11:30 like every other show. If you go to the Beach TV Thread or just google Beach TV, click on the live webcams of Pensacola/Mobile and then click Crab's on Pensacola Beach. You will be able to view some of the show. LIVE!

We have avoided going to the Blue's show in past due to crowds, traffic, parking (but did manage one year to go to Crab's for Sunday brunch and it was a year that the show had been cancelled on Saturday - and the Blue's flew on Sunday while we were there - the other civilian flying had gone home).
Anyway, this year found out that the new P'cola Bay Ferry/Shuttle is selling seats from Palafox Warf to Quiet Water and return with "guaranteed" seats at the various times. 135 seats per sailing. Got tickets to the beach for 11AM and return to downtown at 5PM (4PM return was already sold out last Sunday).
Seems this might work well - easier traffic and parking to downtown - get a cruise on the bay, and be on the beach for the show while avoiding the beach traffic and parking! (and it is my birthday!)
Cheers, Pete
Go Vikings!

I wish! At this point I'd welcome 52nd, or even 62nd!
Anyway, will see what happens today with the ferry, rain, wind, and Blue Angels.
They did report that all the civilian aircraft will not fly, went home?
Cheers, Pete

Blues did fly yesterday. A very abbreviated version of the "low" show. Maybe 5-6 passes - total about 20-minutes. Also, to my eye and commented by another observer, they gave themselves a little more space between planes. Quite windy out of the south. 6+ foot surf.
Ferry over and back worked well. Very nice service - about 50 minutes each way.
Cheers, Pete
