The demo lasted about 15 minutes or so. There really wasn't too much to show, it will be less next weekend at the beach.
    Thanks. Looking forward to seeing it at Jones next week but for an even closer look it'll probably be part of the USN/USMC Demo at Eisenhower Park on Saturday!! Two years ago they flew in two of them.
    Actually three years ago they flew in two, 2012 only 1.

    And don't forget the crowd favorite, it takes a bow LOL. Super cheesy demo but, for my first time seeing one at an airshow, it was worth every penny.

    Joe, we definitely lucked out with the great weather at the show yesterday and it was good seeing you up there too.
    Ah yes, the MOOSE sighting up at the show, I believe Isaac will be posting his shot of it soon
    Yeah, I heard the crowd was HUGE up there today and the traffic getting out of the show was a nightmare.

    FYI - Memorial Day Weekend is actually May 23 - May 25 next year so the RI show on May 30 - May 31 won't be the same weekend as Jones Beach

    Here are a few on mine from the end of the day.
    I do wish they had the combined arms demonstration like in years past!

    Traffic leaving Sunday wasn't bad at all. It took me 10 minutes to get to Rt. 2 via 403. Rt. 2 was a little heavy but it was only one exit to 95.
