    Yesterday's Thunder Over the Boardwalk was pretty good. Although it was overcast and all of the Golden Knights demos were canceled it was perfect temp wise. The B-52 fly-by was pretty damn impressive along with most of the other shows like the F-18, The Harrier, Viper and of course the Spitfire..... New to the Show and their first time in the US was Brazil's 'Smoke Squadron'.
