    Moose, where did you hear about the Snowbirds being at Jones Beach in 2014 also??
    Because according to the 2014 schedule the Snowbirds posted at ICAS last December
    they were supposed to be in Columbia, Mo over the Memorial Day weekend ?

    I thought they had talked about that at the show this year, but maybe I'm mistaken...

    im a bit skeptical about this and the wording used. To me, all the article states is that that Angels are scheduled to be at Jones Beach over that weekend. The newsday article said "some of last years shows were canceled due to sequestration, which is still in effect". Neither article said the shows would be restored with cuts still in place or where the budget would come from.

    They are flying the Blues and T-birds, but not most of the other fly overs and static displays they would normally do.

    By my count, the Thunderbirds have not been at Jones Beach their last two "turns". So next time they would be on the schedule here would be May 2015, correct? That's a huge gap since their last appearance at the Beach (2009?).

    Maybe the government could save some money to bring some statics and tac demos by keping the t-birds grounded......just a thought.
