Tomorrow morning, Wed, 25 May, 2022, here in NYC we need to strike up the band as for the first time in two years the fleet arrives into the harbor. In addition expect to see military aircraft, from helicopters to fighter jets, and over sized cargo aircraft in our friendly sky. Yes, its Fleet Week again & the Coast Guard will be leading the Navy into the harbor around 0600 Hrs. That is not a mistake, but we do not want to see the ships get lost. The 1st ship to arrive at the VZ bridge at 0630 Hrs. Cannons will be exchanging salutes from Ft. Hamilton Army Garisson to the incoming fleet. Escorts to be provided by NYPD Aviation & Harbor besides FDNY and other gvt agencies. Ships will be open for public visits in both Manhattan & Staten Island Thursday through Sunday. Whiile this is going on, the Blue Angles will be arriving in the NYC area along with other military aircraft for the annual Jones Beach Air Show. The show is Sat & Sun, with a practice run on Friday. So expect to see some flyovers in the area.

Always a good time seeing our Military Brothers.

Did Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Jules Munshin, and "Miss Turnstile" remind the young sailors that "The Bronx is up and The Battery's down"?
