    Really terrific show! I live near Hanscom and we haven't had a show since 9/11, I miss the home field advantage. Lots of exhibits and lots of great performances. It was just good enough to almost make me forget about the 3 fucking hours I spend stuck in traffic to get there. I would have enjoyed relaxing with a few beers but couldn't take the risk. Not the drive home, but the 45 minute wait in the port-o-shitter lines. No trees on the runway to duck behind either.

    You'd think the surrounding towns had never seen an airshow before, traffic was insanely backed up. I was listening to the radio and it was clear noone had a clue. Still, good times hearing the roar of the thunderbirds.

    Also, the masspike fucking blows. But thats another rant.

    I just got back, we got a somewhat late start this morning and didnt leave til almost 0930. We were stuck in traffic from exit 7 all the way to exit 3. I knew there would be traffic but that was ridiculous. Even with the traffic and all if I have a chance to see the Thunderbirds again I would do it again tomorrow. I have never been to an airshow before and as of a year ago I had my interest in aviation renewed. I had more fun today than I have had in a long time.

    I wish it wasn't so far away for me. I really miss the shows at Otis. Maybe next year.

    When NAS South Weymouth was still open the Blue Angels would put on a show every two or three years. My Parents house was where they would bank the turns.We would watch the show from the roof of my Dad's workshop.Great shows!

    Yes traffic was really crazy yesterday they actually called me in to do my road detail earlier than I was scheduled for. But it eas a really good show next year I believe that the airshow will be at Westover in Chicopee.

    I hope you were'nt one of the 2 guys on 202 coming from 91 that turned a quaint morning drive into a butt-fuck-athon. Between that and the 2 clowns collecting money at the parking lot traffic got backed up to past exit 7 on the asspike and everywhere inbetween.:stomp::banghead::timebomb:
