    LGA Kids Day 2008 (UPDATE: EVENT CANCELLED)

    I need my spotting fix so I am thinking about flying over there for the Kids Day at LGA and I got couple other people interested in joining me. Last year was fun hanging out with Andy, getting some awesome pictures, and then meeting a bunch of you guys at the BBQ afterwards. What's the plan for this year? I understand that it will be the last Saturday in September - the 27th. Any news yet on what treats we can expect to see there? Any plans for another get-together afterwards? Let's make it happen!

    I am also planning on doing some spotting at JFK and possibly Planeview if the wind is right on Sunday.

    Is this date confirmed? I was also wondering when this year's kids day will be.

    I can't find anything on an LGA or Kiwanis Club web site, but on both the Army Public Affairs, and Navy sites, they list Kids Day on September 27 as an "eligible event" for static displays, etc. That doesn't guarantee we will see Army or Navy displays, but only that it is an approved event.

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it due to the fact that I am going to Italy! I'm sorry I'll miss this event though, it's always a lot of fun. Hopefully we can find Dima a place to stay in the area so he can come out.

    I will be as well. This will be the third year I will miss this. Have always wanted to make the trip to see the static displays. Curious what my company will bring in. What are you lining up with the Routers this year Ron? :P

    I'll be there again. Hopefully, maybe the navy could spare a couple of F-18's for the day...(anyone remember last year)

    Anyone have any idea if the military will be parting with some aircraft for the day?
    Last year, they sent over a C-130 from the NY ANG.
    I think a couple of Hornets and a Hawkeye too but they cancelled out.

    I actually wish I would see a KC-10 tanker at the Kids Day Event!! That would have been more than worth a reason to be at LGA for the event...
