    Default Patriot Demo Team

    Was sitting in the grandstands today watching Patriots Demo Team and their announcer delcared that the Airboss had given them a "Knock it Off" order and supsended their routine. This happened right after a VERY low pass show center over runway 8. When I say low I mean man height. Did anyone hear anything on Race Control or hear anything on this. Great routine by the way. VERY agressive though.

    Been wondering the same thing. A LOT of animated talking going on out on the ramp among the pilots.
    I assumed it was that pass. Anyone know the real reason?

    Yeah it had to be that pass. I liked how they played the lowrider music too But haven't heard anything official. Also a very tight performance.

    That's funny!

    My friend and I were commenting that their paints scheme seems very "Soviet-esque". Paint those stars red on their tails and you're all set!

    Good display and flying skills, definitely. But if I hear "God Bless the USA" at one more airshow I'm going postal.

    Glad the low pass was not the issue. Saturday's was pretty low...
