Blue Angels have arrived. Heard them last night doing a little practice at the airport on freq
237.800 AM
I didn't hear them on any other freq, maybe do to my distance from the airport at the time.

Also heard other military arrivals on 257.800 am (military /civilian tower freq)

Great air show again this year. One disappointment though was that the B2 stealth was canceled due to mechanical problems.

Hah, now you tell me, man this kills. Anyone by chance hear anything over the radio about the problems with the first F-16?

Yep

He had a master gen fail and was unable to reset it . He did apologize to the Airboss for the problem and immediately left the airspace. He did return later in the show with a backup f-16 and did a great performance. I did not catch his callsign.

The F-18 from Canada. (callsign Nightmare 52)
