The new Block-52's are looking so sweet! Can't wait to see them with their new 229's at MacDill! :D

Yeah, my understanding is that the new demo is shorter because of the higher fuel consumption from the bigger motors. They look good, and they sound good. I'm looking forward to Luke in a month.

It's actually shorter due to the increased thrust they now have so they can make their turnarounds faster and fly faster at lower settings. The show will be more dynamic, meaning faster, not necessarily shorter as in less stuff. ;)

Hey, they could fly for five minutes, and I'd consider it an honor to have seen them at all.
