    Even in the best of times that road is dangerous. Thankfully they werent seriously hurt. And let this be a
    lesson to all. Be CAREFUL, Pay ATTENTION, drive SLOWLY!! There will be a hordes of people driving
    around Republic this weekend and lots of them probably have never experienced the wonderment of New
    Highway. Lets be safe and enjoy what is shaping up to be a great weekend.
    Falcon I hope your family recovers quickly and I hope you get a chance to see some of the action. After ALL
    the hard work you have put in it would definitely SUCK if you get shutout!!![/quote]

    Yeah after this accident I can't stress the importance of being aware whether you are the driver or the spectator. And I hope all of you enjoy the events lined up for this weekend I was able to enjoy myself and get some nice pics(which ill post later).

    Also I hopefully ill still make it to the show and ill still try to update you guys the best I can.

    Thank you everyone for your kind words.

    EDIT-
    Both have been discharged from the hospital.

    My brother suffered a minor back injury as well as some bruses and scratches.

    My aunt suffered a laceration and major bruses.

    Naturally, both of them are in pain and shooken up but its not bad considering what could have happened.

    Ken,

    Glad you Aunt and brother are Ok.. When I saw you in the mirror my first thought was that you were pinned between the cars. Glad there was an EMT and a fireman there watching.

    Thanks for all the updates you posted.

    Glad everyone is ok.

    Almost saw a similar situation when the f-18 came in. Some guy tried to pass 3 cars heading north bound on New Highway. He had gone into the opposite lane and almost took a few cars with him as he must have been going 80mph.
    It's hard to take chances but sometimes it's better if you do

    I can not thank all that made this possible enough
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    I just saw (Airshow)Steve put a warning and heads-up on his Facebook page and I put a heads up on the Bethpage FCU Air Show Facebook page. Lots of Yahoos out this weekend and the more we can warn people the better. Even out of
    tragedy some good can come.
    Glad your family members are home and recovering.

    I was down that road. All they did was patch up a few areas. They really need to expand the road a little its too narrow if you ask me. Glad your ok falcon and best regards to your family. What would be the best place for tomorrow morning? by AAM?
