For all you Flight Crew fans in the New York area — and we know there are a lot of you — you can hear and see the Crew in action in the next 24 hours.
For the hearing part, four members of last year's cheerleading group will be making an appearance on tonight's FunkMaster Flex Show on Hot 97. Mandisa, Lauren P., Biance and Jenn M-S will be in studio from about 7:30-8:30 p.m., talking up the Flight Crew, the one remaining prep class (at Chelsea Studios on Thursday night) and this year's auditions (Saturday at FDU in Florham Park).
Accompanying the FC Four will be director Denise Garvey and a FunkMaster in his own right, safety Kerry Rhodes.
For the seeing part, you'll have to arise early Thursday morning and check out "The CW11 Morning News." During the 6 and 7 a.m. hours (and perhaps the 8 a.m. hour as well), 15 Flight Crew members will go through routines and will be interviewed by intrepid reporter Larry Hoff.
Here are the 15 cheerleaders making the Channel 11 appearance, in case you have favorites: Laura D., Lauren P., Natalie, Laura V., Anne-Marie, Jessica, Jen P., Bianca, Gina G., Linda, Danielle B., Meri, Jenn M-S, Justin and Michelle.
There are still openings for the New York City prep class at Chelsea Studios, 151 W. 26th St.. For more information, you can click here. And for info on the auditions this weekend, you can go here.
