    What you would like to see fly at Jones Beachthis year

    Well it's been cold, snowy and very quiet at Republic the last few months. But recently we got a little hope that spring is on the way with the Jones Beach 2011 thread getting some new info.

    So I thought why not post a picture of a plane or demo that you would like to see over Jones Beach this year. It can be a previous performer or a wish.

    That said I would like to see an E2 Hawkeye Demo.

    I'd like to see the return of the B1B ... that was one of the best demos ever at Jones, except for the super foggy conditions :-(

    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Agree, a B-2 would be outstanding!

    Love the idea of pressurized blades!

    Nothing. That way I wouldn't have to go.

    I'll second the request for the Valkyrie - now that would be worth the price of admission alone. Oh, and have it land at FRG, too.

    Similarly, I'd love to see a Concorde do a flyby - either real slow with nose and gear down, or at Mach .9 at 20 feet off the deck! (or both)

    Well considering only two prototypes were built and one crashed and the other is in a museum it might be a little difficult. Would be cool though.
    Would love to see the Osprey go through the paces at the beach. They did a nice fast low flyby at Eisenhower last summer that was so nice. Hopefully the USMC
    does that again this year. WELL WORTH the time to go see. But I digress here from the original topic

    Since this thread is gone here... I will bite

    I want to see Tomcat #3 taken out of the Cradle of Aviation with one wing swept forward and the other in full sweep doing Mach 2.6 with the Canopy gone and the Rio Ejected with two separate lightning bolts hitting the vertical stabs while cruising at 10 feet making a 1/4mile rooster tail in stage 6 burner! COME ON GUYS... if your going to dream, DO IT BIG! And Please include lightning bolts.

    (I did not ask for water vapor....why would you want anything obstructing that picture!)
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".
