If the ocean is calm, multiply that picture by at least 2 miles!

The don't, especially since most of the boats only carry 150' of rode and they only throw out 70', if that.

Grrrr. We were going to head offshore fishing out of PE Saturday morning early. Wonder if we are out by 7a If we can avoid the traffic.

Last year we were in the middle of the group and dropped anchor in about 50' of water. Not too bad, but there are lots of boats that pull hooks.

More fun than watching the show, provided you are on an aircraft carrier.

Wait till tomorrow. On Friday they replicate the show pretty much exactly. When you see what time tomorrow then you'll know. I thing today was not the same as I saw them as early as 12:30 and also also from 1-2 around PE.

Yep, saw and heard them today up past Commercial around noon and then 1:30. Cool to see them roaring over the house at 800-900 feet!

First time I ever saw the Thunderbirds it was about 1964 at Torrejon Air Base in Madrid and they were flying the North American F-100 Super Sabre!!
