    The Thunderbirds did Jones Beach last year; it seems like the T-birds (no, not you, the demo team!) and the Angels alternate the Jones Beach show. The Thunderbirds are doing McGuire and Atlantic City this year, if you want to travel a bit to see them.

    Really? I can think of lots of other stuff I would rather see do a demo. I think an E-3 would be a rather tame flyby:

    The Bone was cool, if for no other reason than how loud it was. There was a Harrier demo at the Atlantic City show last year which was excellent; something like that'd be nice at Jones Beach. I don't know that an E-3 would be a particularly popular thing; it's just not as exciting as fighters and all that. Jones Beach missed out on the stealth planes last year; McGuire had an F-117 and ACY had a B-2.
