    Thanks for the link Ken.
    I see there's only 2 shows listed so far for the F-22 Demo in 2011 on the ICAS site,
    so I guess we won't know their official schedule until it's posted on the ACC website

    Knowing this, I may have to make the drive down to Jones Beach this year to catch the show.

    i hope the ACC didnt make a mistake, but if this is accurate, this show is now all about the F-22. Maybe we can get an extended demo? Think it will still be at ISP?

    Yes! Now I am excited as I have not seen the Raptor since '07. Add the Super Bug and it will shape up to be a great show as usual.

    I'm hoping that with a jet team not occupying the main terminal ramp, that the Raptor will stage out of FRG. This will let them be parked right under the nose of airport ops all the time. I know the Navy and A-10 usualy park at Sheltair.

    Today's Newsday (online...) has a story about the air show, saying that for the first time since it began in 2004, neither the Thunderbirds nor Blue Angels will be performing, due to the T-Birds overseas trip. The piece ends with this...

    To help fill the empty spot, the East Farmingdale-based American Airpower Museum is putting together a flight of historic bombers, a B-29, B-17 and B-25. The B-29, nicknamed Fifi, is the only B-29 in flying condition in the world.
    I've been hearing rumors about Fifi, but this is the first I've seen it in print!

    ETA - I've had this confirmed by a source...

    I definitely am finding time to make it down to Long Island for Jones beach for the airshow this year now!! The thought of the F-22 beingthere got me really interested, but now I am drooling. What a site that is going to be!

    This years night under the stars is looking good!!! Now I have to see if they will allow us to do it again!
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".
