    Looking at Flightaware, Palm Springs' C-47 landed around 3:45, so hopefully visibility approaching the field is ok. The TFR goes until after 5:00 today, so I would imagine NAHI arrivals will still be happening. I believe a lot usually come in Tuesday evening with Wednesday being opening day. Some might have to adjust to arrive in the morning. On the military side, we got a ton of arrivals last year on Friday evening. It seemed like only a handful arrived on Wednesday/Thursday, so I wouldn't be too worried about military static yet. But I am with you that if smoke keeps rolling in the afternoons, it could become an issue quick.

    Smoke rolled in again early and thick. I left the field around 4:40 and the C-17 was the only thing I saw coming in. When it hits, it hits hard. Everyday has been really nice though. I feel bad for the campers though. Tales of campers going into town and getting hotel rooms because the smoke is overwhelming. Can?t imagine being in a tent.

    Watching the live feed and the smoke does look very thick, definitely can't see the back of the course. Wonder how many races they'll get in? Shame - real shame. Hopefully it will clear out soon.

    I'm seeing postings saying the race course is closed due to smoke......

    The live feed on YouTube is saying smoke delay but the announcers just said it?s slowly clearing and they were towing the T-6s out. Hopefully it gets better!

    Getting worse near the grandstands. Hopefully one last little pocket to clear out.

    According to the announcers, the F-1s are tentatively scheduled for a 1230 PST start
