    2012 Air Show Planning

    So finally had a few minutes to look at my calendar for the balance of this year. What air shows are y'all planning on going to (or already went to) in 2012.
    I'm looking at the following:

    May - Jones Beach Air Show
    June - RI Air Show
    August - Greenwood Lake Air Show
    October - Rotorfest

    If anyone has tips for Greenwood Lake or Rotorfest it would be greatly appreciated.

    Ocean City

    I hope to make McGuire AFB, and certainly Jones Beach. Beyond that, it depends on where life takes me, but I've been checking the calendar, and may hit a few more beyond those two...

    The lighting at Greenwood Lake is good up until the later part of the afternoon... Rotorfest... you're looking into the sun the entire day, but Sunday is the day to go there since you've got almost all of the military helicopters departing that day.

    I'll be at McGuire, Andrews, Reading for WWII Weekend, Rhode Island, maybe Westover, Atlantic City, Greenwood Lake, New Garden (PA), NAS Oceana, Culpeper (VA), Rotorfest, and NAS Pensacola. I'm also going to try and sneak in a NAS Oceana spotting trip somewhere this summer. I really want to go to Jones Beach this year but my best friend is getting married that weekend...

    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.
    I trust you are not in too much distress. —Captain Eric Moody, British Airways Flight 9

    give me a call when you get there, i'll already be working at PVD ATCT at that point and definitely going to that show. i'd really, really like to make it to rotorfest one of these years too!
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Jones Beach
    Rhode Island (hopefully the line-up gets better )

    BTW Steve, if I had a selfish Best friend who was getting married on Memorial Day weekend, I'd just tell him he'll be getting my card and check in the mail then, because I'd definitely be at Jones Beach and the AAM that whole weekend instead buddy !! Ha!!
