    Red Arrows to visit Republic Airport

    According to a post on airshowbuzz.com, the British Red Arrows are stopping by Republic Airport on June 25th.

    This should be interesting.

    Anyone know any more about this?

    This is the post :

    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Cool! I was wondering if they were going to drop in to FRG. Looks like I'll be spending some time around the old air patch :) I don't understand this line on the schedule though:
    25 June Display South Beach, New York

    Where is "South Beach, NY", and is it a full demo or just a fly over?

    Last I heard, there was only going to be a flyover somewhere near NYC, though the term "display" could mean anything.

    I know there were some "hush-hush" rumors about the Republic visit a few weeks ago, but I'm glad to see an official posting well in advance of the actual event!

    I remember hearing about a flyover around NYC, which was why I was hoping for an FRG visit.

    Re: Red Arrows to visit Republic Airport

    I got the following email from my friend in London 2 months ago. I think its pertinent.


    Two Airshows in the US will Host the RAF RED ARROWS one is fairly close to you!

    Rhode Island Air National Guard has confirmed the Red Arrows at their show June 28-29!

    Langley AFB has confirmed the Red Arrows for June 21-22!
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    South Beach is in Staten Island. :D

    From what I read, it is a full demo and not a fly over.

    Great news, I'm on vacation this week. They tried to arrange to do a show over the Statue of Liberty but it was gonna be a logistical nightmare from the air traffic perspective.

    That timing's perfect. It isn't on their website for some reason.

    EDIT: Oh, wait... I just read it more in depth..
