    Awesome that they'll be more thunder in 2015! And not to get ahead or over shadow this summer but the Blues announced their 2016 schedule and they will be at Jones Beach and Coney Island! Hopefully based at Republic for both!

    And it also appears that the AAM will be doing what they are calling "a salute to the end of WWII" which I am SPECULATING will include a return of "FiFi."

    FYI- the CF-18 Demo Team's website has updated their 2015 schedule and it now shows
    the Rochester Air Show instead of the Jones Beach Air Show for Memorial Day weekend.
    Hopefully Jones Beach will still be able to get either the F-18 Legacy or Super Hornet Demo
    once the 2015 NAVY F-18 TAC DEMO schedules are posted soon ... Fingers crossed !

    Nice to have the Birds back. Unfortunately my drives can no longer read the CD where I saved my Thunderbird photos to from their last appearance(2009?). %@#!

    Check the bottom surface of the disc. Look for any fingerprints in the data area, as those can easily render the disc unreadable. A soft damp cloth can usually fix that quickly. But be very careful not to scratch the disc while doing so. Then try mounting the disc again and if you succeed in accessing the disc, try copying the data a little at a time back to your main drive.

    Think we'll ever get the F-35 to make an appearance, or have the B-1B Lancer make a return? STILL dying to see a B-2 in person :D

    I expect we'll see an F-35 once they are in wider service. I doubt we'll see another B-1 or a B-2, but never say never.

    Maybe we'll see a Thunderbird or two drop by FRG for a Recon flight soon?

    Why is it that the Thunderbirds never stay at FRG when nearly all the other military teams do? Does the F-16 require that much longer of a runway than the Hornets & other aircraft that fly in?

    They have stayed at FRG!! They were here in 2009 which might have been the last time they did Jones Beach.
