#5 flew as well but just a few passes around (not sure if that was just so the crowd could see one of the new super hornets or if he was actually trying to survey a bit?).

It was a weather survey. He did do a couple passes for the crowd though

That's what I was thinking overall.

I think this is my favorite shot from the show. I wasn't able to go today since travel is ~3 hours and have a few young ones that tend to get antsy. Trip was worth it I think for this picture: https://imgur.com/andThid

Stopped at KIAG on my way home yesterday to catch the performers returning from the Buffalo show. Unfortunately, the forecast of 'mostly sunny' didn't last long and the skies were full of broken clouds for much of the afternoon. Still, it was a wonderful way to end my US adventure.
