On Saturday, 30 April, we left the hotel at half past seven and reported at the gate for our press cards around 8am. The administration was different than yesterday but eventually we got our passes. Transport to our spot on the field was again in small groups. The last group arrived around half past ten. The flying programme started later in the morning and it was still cloudy. Some of us decided to walk along the flight line to photograph several Harriers, EA-6B and Ospreys and the CH-53s in the maintenance area. That was no problem, everything went very relaxed. The Blue Angels gave their show, plus there was a demo of a Canadian CF-188 Hornet in special colours. The Raptor demo was flown with a ‘TY’ F-22A. The air power demonstration was nice but since the clouds were below 1500 ft the Hornets and AV-8B could not take off to join the demo. That was unfortunate but fortunately the CH-53E, Cobra, Huey and Ospreys were photographed well. All in all a great day even though it was difficult to leave the airfield. We had heard that some KC-130Js would stand at an airfield nearby. Well, what do you do? Go there of course! We saw three KC-130Js who just came from Europe and one C-123 and preserved AV-8A. At half past twelve we, eventually, were only in our hotel in Richmond. It was late and the lady behind the counter said she had no rooms left for us … After insisting many time to look again and the assistance of a colleague who was summoned to show up they found our reservations. By now it had become Sunday already for many of us.
