A National Park Service volunteer just told me that the tanks & military equipment are all in the closed off perimeter for the president's VIPs and that the general public on the Mall will not be able to see them.

Gregg, you were a military pilot, right?

You don't think they are going to be doing demo flybys in this weather?
Yes, and hard to tell. AF1 is certainly capable of flying in much worse weather, but its kind of a big thing to risk doing. If the boss says fly, though, they'll fly.

The B2 is another kettle of fish. First, it would be making a round trip from Missouri, they can land it anywhere but getting it ready to take off isn't exactly portable for one day and it has the range, the problem is its not an all weather airplane and keeping up around FL40 or so is what they'd normally do, but if its cloudy you won't see it, and by the time you hear it, it'll be already out of Maryland and halfway across West Virginia. Same with the fighters, they're more flexible at lower altitudes but with the clouds they have there today, their altitude would only be legal because its an airshow.

No worries for the eggbeaters, I've flown in near gale winds (I don't recommend it) off the coast of Central America.

Thunderstorm over DC half a mile from an airstrip, yawn.

Twitter is insisting CNN says the event has been delayed due to thunderstorms entering the area, but I was just at CNN.com and couldn't find it. I'll keep looking.
I googled some of the text from the tweet posted earlier "Salute to America “Today’s event has been delayed. Please standby.”

Evacuation Ordered Near U.S. Capitol Before Trump July 4 Speech
2:43 PM PDT 7/4/2019 by the Associated Press , THR Staff

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for parts of the nation's capital and the Maryland and Virginia suburbs.

The U.S. Capitol Police has ordered the evacuation of the "West Front" of the U.S. Capitol due to severe weather just over an hour before President Trump is scheduled to deliver a July 4 speech at his "Salute to America" celebration.

The announcement came less than an hour after "Salute to America" organizers announced "Today's event has been delayed. Please standby" to visitors of the event.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for parts of the nation's capital and the Maryland and Virginia suburbs hours before the Independence Day celebration on the National Mall was set to begin.

The watch is active until 8 p.m., which would stretch into the evening when President Donald Trump plans to speak from the Lincoln Memorial. Military flyovers also are on the schedule.

The Weather Service says storms are expected to develop early afternoon and there may be torrential rains. It says there's a chance of flash flooding.

Trump has promised his "Salute to America" will be the "show of a lifetime" for revelers who flock to the National Mall. Critics call Trump's event a waste of money.

Cheers from the people who confronted RevCom, now chanting “the west is the best.” And earlier: “Proud Boys, whatcha gonna do when we come for you” to the tune of Bad Boys.

Alejandro Alvarez @aletweetsnews

The Secret Service are completely clearing Lafayette Square, everybody spilling over onto H Street.
RevCom are the middle aged white dickheads who came Ferguson and would do stuff like stand at the back of the crowd and lob bottles at the cops and then run away while the black kids got tear gassed and the cops kicked their asses. They also showed black kids how to make molotov cocktails, and generally whipped of violence during peaceful protests and then managed to back away just in time not to get teargassed, shot with rubber bullets or arrested.

The webcam at the National Mall was abruptly shut down without notice and has been removed from the http://whitehouse.gov site. Presumably to stop viewers from seeing the lack of attendees at the #TrumpParade. We are about to relive Trump’s inauguration all over again.

That, or the Secret Service didn't like to have the coverage where the overall setup of the location and dotus especially was to be seen for several hours.

The rain on the bulletproof glass makes Donald look like he's in The Matrix :lol: He's gonna be pissed all night. He hates not being able to riff and the fans want much more red meat. No sign of JFK Jr or mass arrests of Democrats yet.

Trump tried to kiss Melanoma, aimed for the lips but got the side of her head. I hope she has some disinfectant handy.

Odd that Fox is not showing the crowd

Did I hear correctly? Cadet Bone Spurs just called on the young men (and I think women - but not sure) to join the armed forces.

I turned on CNN just in time to see Trump say some words behind a rain splattered screen. Then an Air Force bomber flew overhead. The clouds were thick, so I could only see a gray outline of the plane. Minimal polite applause and whistles. Then CNN cut to a commercial.

The little girl behind trump (lower left of the screen on NBC News Now) is stealing the show. Yawning and yakking it up with her mom! :thumbs:

I saw several people using the flag as a blanket/wrap whatever. And was that Mrs. Pence with a flag scarf wrapped around her neck :torches:

So far, he seems to be sticking to script, and I do appreciate the honor being given to our military, but I am still :sick: that it's coming from Cadet Bone Spurs.
