    No TFR posted yet for the practice or show.

    If the Thunderbirds come in on Wednesday I wonder if they will go up for a run through on Thursday.

    I know now they used to transit to shows on Thursday and practice once on Friday.

    Yeah, I'm definitely looking forward to RI and Westover had a very impressive line-up this past weekend also.

    It's just ironic that it's FLEET WEEK NEW YORK and now there's NO NAVY or USMC Demos scheduled for Jones Beach ??!!
    Even the new NYC/ Coney Island Show that's "supposedly" going to happen in August is scheduled to have both the
    Navy Super Hornet Demo AND USMC Harrier Demo !!!! ..... Go figure

    12-5P show window will leave a lot of empty time slots.

    I'm sure some of the solo performers will pull Double Duty for the show, and the Golden Knights will probably jump 2 or 3 times,
    and hey they can always get the SUNY Farmingdale Flight School to do some flybys again to fill some of the empty time slots also

    Just saw this disturbing info posted on the Navy TAC Demo FB page:

    "The Gladiators of VFA-106 will not be flying at the Jones Beach show this weekend.
    Unfortunately airspace limitations precluded us from being able to fly the show."


    If they can't fly their demo how will the Thunderbirds be able to fly their demo ???
    There's no FAA TFR posted for the show yet, and this news doesn't sound good at all

    Probably due to the runway work going on at JFK, affecting approach/departure routing.

    What's the usual JFK configuration while the show is going on? Could it be with use of the 13/31 pair mandatory the FAA would only give them a big airspace box for a short amount of time and the organizers decided to use it on the Thunderbirds?

    Supposedly, The hornet required the same airspace as the Thunderbirds and the FAA wasn't going to allow it. Apparently there must be a variable air show box this year.

    I don't even care, as we said earlier, with next weeks lineup this a good warm-up show.

    Anybody going to try to catch the Thunderbirds arrival to Islip?
    EVERYONE IS THERE TO SEE THE SHERPA!

    Fifi will be inbound today - they are planning a flyover of the Statue of Liberty at Noon, and will arrive at FRG following that.

    That's a nice added bonus for anyone catching the Parade of Ships for Fleet Week in NY Harbor today
