    Complaints from the neighbors about AM noise? Show shorter this year?

    I heard the reason why the show start is pushed back this year is to help Air Traffic due to the runway closure at JFK.

    Yes it sure is! With the old time, the headline act would pretty much be wrapped up by ten to 3pm. Hang out on the beach for another hour or so, and casually make your way back to the parking lot where a good deal of the cars were already on their way. Be home by 5:30 to shower and make it to a BBQ party. Now with the headline act wrapping up at 5pm, the sun will be going down, most of the crowd will have been at the beach since 9AM (you will still have to get there by 9 or 10 AT THE LATEST before the lots are full) and everyone will want to leave at 5pm. Making plans post show ain't gonna happen. My sincere hope is that they put the 'Birds on at around 2 or 3pm at the latest and wrap the show up with the F-18 or Breitling Jets. I'll stay for the full show but most people coming to see the T Birds will split before that.

    Yes that 12 PM starting time will be interesting in how people arrive!! Most people will probably ASSUME the show starts at 10 due to past shows and get there early!! They really need to get it out via media and social network of the later time!! Not sure it will matter but if its a sunny/ hot day I can see people leaving even before the TBirds come on!!

    I've not been to a show that featured the T-Birds or Blues where they weren't the closing act.

    I agree w/Moose, the T-Birds or Angels have always been the Finale in my experience. And as others have said, yes... it's going to make for a long day at the beach, hopefully it will be warm & sunny but not too hot!

    Fifi, Diamond Lil, and the other CAF aircraft are scheduled to arrive at the AAM on Monday, May 18, and the museum is planning to be open all week leading up to air show weekend.
