    Same here, it's gonna be rough.
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.
    I trust you are not in too much distress. —Captain Eric Moody, British Airways Flight 9

    Oh man me too!! But it falls in Sept/Oct range and that is a tough time to get away for the weekend for me. I usually check the dates then
    check the life schedule with my wife.
    And part of the Fleetweek is the USMC Fly In/Demo at Eisenhower Park on the Sat of the Air Show. Last year was 2 Cobras, 2 Ospreys and a Seahawk.

    I would try for Farnborough but loads are due to suck since the Olympics are over there and around that time of the year.
