    A couple of years ago, it was so humid, even the blimps were pulling vapor!

    Maybe they will shoot that F-35 off from Lakehurst and send it over to the show.

    Looks like there isn't any chance of getting an F-35 this year :(

    In case anyone is interested there is live music on the Boardwalk the night before the show then right after the show.
    Scroll down to "Mardis Gras on The Boardwalk".

    Jason Flood, an aerobatic performer who performed at Atlantic City last year is in critical condition after an accident trying to pick up a tow banner.

    I hope he gets better soon!

    We are going to have some racing at this years show!

    "This year the Skytypers will do something special at the A.C. show — they will race the five-time world champion Miss Geico Racing Team powerboat — a catamaran-hulled speedboat equipped with helicopter engines that can travel at speeds of up to 200 miles-per–hour."

    Really hoping for the best.

    He flew a great routine last year & I was really looking forward to seeing him again.

    Some last minute updates for the airshow:

    The following performers have been removed for various reasons:

    B-25
    T-28
    HU-25 Demo
    MiG-17 Aerobatic Demo
    1x C-17 flyby ( The other scheduled one will still fly)
    MH-60S Flyby

    The following performers have had a slight schedule/performance change:

    The other C-17 flyby will be pushed back to 1200
    Tom Duffy's F4U Corsair will do a couple of passes after the F-18 Demo
    The 166th will provide 2x C-130H's for their flyby
    Instead of the C-130P flyby - the 106th ANG will provide a HC-130 flyby
    The FAA Global 5000 and Convair 580 is now listed as tentative

    The following performers has been added:
    NJSP Helicopters
    Surprise*

    * The surprise will happen within the 1 o'clock hour with the only hints being:

    All I'm going to say is that it hasn't been a part of the 8 previous Atlantic City Thunder over the Boardwalk Airshows!

    And

    No, but I have to be VERY careful where I park it.

    There is also some concern with aircraft arriving and practicing but the weather was similar last year and it turned out to be a great show!

    thanks for the update. I'll be heading down early tomorrow. Free Room, Free Food. As long as I don't gamble too much it should be a good couple of days..

    Yeah I'm looking forward to it also, I'll probably be on the beach in front of the Tropicana.

    This revised schedule was just posted:

    I may make it for the show on Wednesday thanks to grubbing a time-share hotel room off of my brother and s-i-l. I'll be bringing the D90 and 70-300mm VR lens. Given the issues with the pier, etc., any advice where to set up camp on the boardwalk?

    Personally I would not camp out on the boardwalk, with all the people and kids walking and running around ect; I would not recommend it. Also 300mm probably wouldn't cut it from there since the aerobatic box is further out than jones beach. If I were you I would camp out in front of the Tropicana or somewhere close since that is show center (or close to it) and go on the beach, since the beach is small half way should be plenty, they even have beach chairs you can rent just in case you want to sit between acts.
