    I hope we get some team. Somebody slipped in not bookng a performance for jones beach. This is one of their biggest shows each year and would be a huge shame if we got nothing.

    It's not really anybodies fault for not having a demo team. The T-birds are being deployed to Europe, the Blues had their schedule set since 2009, the Snowbirds are doing all out of Canada shows before Memorial day, and teams such as the Red Arrows or Brazilian Smoke Squadron are hard to get. That's just how things fell into place this year.

    There have been major airshows without a demo team for the same reason and it has still been successful.

    Also as of now we have have an MV-22 static display, US Army Golden Knights, and the AAM. It's getting better by the day if you ask me.

    Get us an F-22 at least. Something we dont see here often I enjoy the blues and all of them. It wont be the same without a demo team.

    Why has it been so impossible to get a MV-22 demo at Jones beach!? We have been drooling for this for years. I think the closest we came was a mini demo at Eisenhower park.

    Wow! Over five months to the show and we are already on page three.

    Not to be a pessimist but the list for the V-22 is tentative. Also I know there is room at the beach to land but after what happened last year in Staten Island I would guess they are going to be more careful with there landings.

    I missed Eisenhower Park last year but heard it was quite the rotor wash. Picture that in the sand.

    Besides I am sure the 106th wants to keep their spot at the west end.

    They also list the static for Atlantic City. Where would they put it there?

    Don't get me wrong I would love to see them, let alone catch them flying in or taking off. Or staging out of Republic. Last year I rode in to Fleet Week just to catch the Thunderchickens in the air.

    I am just not getting my hopes up.

    All very good points Fred.

    I guess we'll see how they are going to figure it all out as it gets closer to the show.

    Actually it wasnt that bad even with four copters. The LZ was a large grassy field and the crowds were kept at a relatively safe distance when they both arrived and departed. I think
    the problems in SI and Flushing Meadow was that they used baseball fields with lots of dry dirt. That is wonderful for rotorwash.
    When the copters departed they returned for low and fast fly-bys. The Cobras and Sea Knight came in together then about almost a minute later the Osprey roared in over the field,
    then after clearing the e LZ did a quick turn and climb and was gone. Quite impressive.
    Hopefully they do it again.

    Yeah, there were no problems at all last year at Eisenhower.
    It was a great Demo and I hope they do it again in 2011 too !!
