Security data sent to Andrews. Anybody else who wants to go are on their own. If you have a valid DoD ID you should still be able to drive on base. Others will have to go to FEDEX Field and get bused over.

Hector, We will all get together and drive over from VA. Time And Place to be determined

Might I suggest we leave from the VI around 8 or so. Apparently it would take less than an hour on Saturday Morning.

FYI....THE Rosie the Riveter will be at this show. One of our C-17s has been dedicated to her service and now has Nose Art reflecting such.
We attempted to schedule that aircraft to do an aerial r3fueling with Her in the tanker looking down at the nose art during the rendezvous. But, our jet is in scheduled heavy maintenance during that time.
So, I’m working with our PA folks to have our crew bring some moments of the dedication ceremony instead.

Have the brave and fearless leaders of this group decided where and when we meet. Not all of us live in the Commonwealth. I have one guest coming in from the Annapolis area.

Ken, thank you for your generous efforts to put this event together for this motley crew.

Troll,
Feel free to set up a caravan from DC and your MD friends.

I still think the VI is a good meeting point for the northern Va contingent.

Those from Va. who wish to caravan in a group, I propose we leave from the VI. If we leave after breakfast around 8:30, which would put us at the "Pearly Gates" around 9:30. This would give us plenty of time to view the static displays, set up chairs and take a pee before the Air Show starts.

Those who will find that inconvenient (Ken, Larry, Marc, JimH, Franck) could plan on arriving at that time. Ken has not said how we are getting from the Naval Reserve Parking to the viewing area. I believe it is on the other side of the air field and I doubt they will let us wander over there un-escorted. UPDATED 5/6/19 : Ken has advised that there will be a shuttle bus from the ramp in front of NAF to take us to the Air Show Viewing area.

I was disapointed that coolers aren't allowed, since I doubt they will sell beer or wine. :mad:

So far, weather looks good for Saturday.... but Friday and Sunday seems rainy... a bit scary.... let see how things progress.

Anybody from Maryland / MoCo willing to caravan to the destination?
