Aerobatic practice runs on May 26, 2000, prior to airshow at Millville Army Airport Museum at Millville, NJ Airport:

The day before the airshow was clear and beautiful; the show was to run 2 days, Saturday May 27 & Sunday the 28th.  Most of the Saturday show's events, including a Stealth fighter fly-by, were rained out. So we were really lucky to see these practice runs the day before.  We're told that Sunday was better, but we couldn't make it.
