    Thought some folks might like to see the flight plan in case you are in a good place to see or have the time etc.

    They said the times may change due to weather.

    They'll be in Austin afterwards.

    It would be cool to see if it works out.

    I’d like them to do a show of force over SAT city hall. Never mind, those things weren’t even effective in AFG.

    San Antonio!
    Saw them from the Santikos Theater in Alamo Ranch. The parking lot was pretty crowded but everyone kept their distance. The only ones I noticed wearing masks were the two young guys driving around in a golf cart (security?). Didn't catch the T-birds as they flew over Helotes and down Bandera Road, but saw them cutting over towards 151 then they looped to the south of where we were then came back and flew directly over us. It was a six-ship formation with a non-T-bird two-seater trailing (most likely with a Combat Camera guy or gal in the back). Couldn't tell if it was also from Nellis or a local 149 FW bird. I would guess the latter.

    It was cool, but it was just a formation flyby and over with in a minute.

    Not the best video as U-Tube decreased the quality, but you get the idea...
