James, I liked the pics of the A-10 Warthogs flying over the Inner Harbor and Raven's stadium. Nice shot on Flicker. Glad you and your family had a great time.

I thought for sure you got away with the "big one" Al, perhaps next year?

It was a nice event, I enjoyed it. Hopefully the rain holds off next year.
