    2015 Thunder Over the Boardwalk Airshow

    Just a quick FYI... the 2015 edition of Thunder Over the Boardwalk (you know, that airshow in Atlantic City...) has MOVED their dates from May 27 (with practice on May 26) to September 2 (with practice on September 1).

    It's still Tuesday-Wednesday just like the original dates, the Blue Angels are still scheduled to appear on the new dates, and there is a LOT of speculation now that the show is in September that could possibly be answered next week when the Thunderbirds and Snowbirds schedules for 2015 are released...

    Because they have no problem attracting people to AC on the weekend. They're looking to drive some mid-week traffic.

    They're also pretty much guaranteed one of the big jet teams for a midweek show. I agree with the frustration, though; I've never been because of the midweek timing.

    I was able to go when I was unemployed a couple years back. It was a great show!

    There will be "more than one team" at AC next year. It's not the Thunderbirds, and this does not include the GEICO Skytypers, even though they are scheduled...

    Not according to the schedule they just released:
    http://www.airshowstuff.com/blog/?p=2139

    In fact, AC is not on the schedules released for the Thunderbirds, Blue Angels, or Snowbirds.

    The Breitling Jet Team is scheduled for both Jones Beach and AC, however:

    John I just saw Angels for AC on the list.
    And you going to Moose Jaw on May 1 for the Snowbirds?

    I think they updated the page I originally saw - AC is on their list for 2015. And Gerard, I've wanted to go to Moose Jaw for a long time!

    Oh, sure, I finally made it to Quonset this year and the Snowbirds come next year :< . Love the Snowbirds - haven't seen them since Andrews in 06 or 07.

    Speaking of Andrews - September 19/20 and it's the same weekend as Oceana? That's going to very annoyingly split up what's available for a static, especially on the Navy side of things. And since when is there an airshow at Westover?

    I noticed also on the Blues schedule something called the New York City Airshow at Coney Island in August 2016. Anyone know more about that?

    A couple of years ago there was something like that scheduled, which never came off - might have been on the Thunderbirds schedule. Basically a demo over the water off the beach, like the Jones Beach show. I don't recall anything else scheduled as part of it the last time it was discussed.
