    It's looking pretty good already. Got my fingers crossed for a Raptor Demo...

    Ken, thanks for the update!
    I noticed the BFCU link mentions that it will be a F-18 Super Hornet Demo too !!
    Fingers crossed for the F-22 Demo also, but if not, I'd love to see the B1-B do some flybys !!!

    I loved the B1 a few years back, but would like the F-22 a bit more. Actually, ill take any jet metal. I believe we were supposed to have a B-2 or F-117 a few years back, but it got canned shortly before.

    The AAM just made it official on their Facebook page that the B-17 "Yankee Lady" will be at the show this year.

    I will likely do my usual split of one day at the beach and the next day at the airport! The Snow Birds always put on a great show!

    This might be sacrilegious, but I wonder how long it will be before we see a UAV added to a future list of performers...

    F-22?

    Since the F-22 was grounded last year & was cancelled for the Jones Beach show.... what are the chances we can get a Raptor to appear at this years' show?

    I can confirm that the F-22 has been added to the show and will be based out of KISP. Shhh, it is a secret but Yes, it is for real....as long as they do not ground them again. There have been many more incidents and the Charcoal filters and not fixing all the issues with the Air contamination issue that mimic's hypoxia.
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    You've made my day!! Now if we can also get a B1 Lancer again... and I've never seen a B2 in person yet....

    If the Raptors are stationed out of ISP, do they do a flyby at FRG on there way to/from the beach?
