    It wouldn't be the end of the world if we didn't have a team. It might even keep down the crowds somewhat. I think it would open up the show to more acts and change it up a bit from past years. More individual military demo's, more warbirds, etc....

    There are some civilian flight teams I'd love to see as well. The Patriot Jet Team, or the new Heavy Metal Jet Team which is Snort Snodgrass new gig. I love there 'arctic' camo on their T33 and L39's. Then there is always the Starfighters!!

    I just hope that someone at the top of the planning chain doesn't get the foolhardy idea in their head "No jet team...no show". That has happened to some other shows in the past and caused it's demise in some cases.

    Id love to see more of the big heavy metal like A/C had. Bombers, tankers and transports and maybe some civilian big metal also.
    And of course some more helo demos.

    Well as of now the show is a go but there is still a ton of time and stuff can change at a moment's notice.

    Let's hope for the best and hopefully we'll get the Thunderbirds.

    OK....so it's now official.....no team for Jones Beach this year. ASB.TV has the official 2011 scheds posted for all 3 NA jet teams. As stated here the 'Birds are headed to Europe after the USAFA on the 25th.

    Now we get to be surprised.......

    rev12.6.10 -6:44PM

    Removed:Guide:Starring: USAF Thunderbirds
    Added:Guide:Starring: United States Armed Forces
    Added:Guide:Military: US Army Golden Knights

    More Information

    Update:Update: There are conflicting reports the the Snowbirds are actually going to be at Jones Beach. The Snowbirds schedule shows them to be at St Hubert, QC on the 28-29, but ICAS shows them to be at Jones Beach. I wouldn't get my hopes up high though because it is probably an error because the Snowbirds will actually be attending the 2012 Jones Beach Airshow.

    Update: ICAS corrected the above error. No Snowbirds this year.

    It looks likes the Snowbirds will not be attending
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    Yeah it looks like it.

    Hopefully this will open up the show to new performers and maybe we will get acts that are out of the ordinary for Jones Beach.

    A bunch of Navy guys get together and fly really close together and do some loops rolls and turn jet fuel into allot of noise...... I am just saying....

    Thanks John (no Thanks Derf ), Was wondering since Millville is a small airport. Depending on how JB turns out looks like I'll do AC again.

    Millville may be a small airport but the Blues do stage out of there...

    I'm hoping the ACC steps up and gives us some acts. It's a shame we don't have a jet team this year for such a large Airshow.

    If we get a few burner acts I'll be happy though.

    Wish List:

    Super Hornet
    Viper West
    F-22
    CF-18!

    Realistic? Probably not, but hopeful!

    I have the Bethpage FCU Air Show page on Facebook and I just saw a post "Working on establishing a wonderful show for this year that will also celebrate the 100th Anniversary of
    Naval Aviation. Stay tuned".
    Nice.

    FYI- I just read over on the Fencecheck "2011 Military Performers" forums that an
    MV-22 Osprey is tentatively scheduled to be on static display at the Jones Beach Air show.
    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this static display turns into an actual "demo" possibly
    Here's the link:

    I'm also hoping that since they weren't able to get the USAF Thunderbirds this year,
    that they'll be able to book the NEW Civilian 5-ship "Heavy Metal Jet Team" for 2011 !!
    Here's a link for their brand new website incase you'd like to see their cool teaser video:
