    I usually stalk this place around airshow time.

    But it's really quiet in here this year.

    No updates? Schedules? Arrivals?

    Or is there another place people are discussing this show?

    We're still a month out, we won't really hear about arrivals or schedules for another couple of weeks.

    2 weeks tomorrow!! Woo Hoo!!
    BTW now that Stu Leonards is open, parking for watching/spotting in that lot right by the store has become limited!! I did see that even when its pretty busy there was enough space/spots on the other side of the road closer to the fence!! But with that added traffic we need to be more careful and alert as we wander around and even more so if you have young children with you!!

    FYI - looks like the Snowbirds and Breitling Jet Teams will be based over by the AAM and Sheltair for the show.
    and I see the AAM is expecting active service A-10s to be visiting over Memorial Day Weekend also for their
    Celebration of 75 Years of Republic Aviation "Thunder" too

    Would be awesome to see A-10's flying into Republic again!

    Are they offering any weekend passes this year? I believe they did in the past.

    Last I heard the F-35 will still be using ACY and the F-16 will be using ISP for the Jones Beach show.

    No way the F-35 is going to FRG. Based on the care and security they had for the F-35 at MCAS Cherry Point Show they are very protective of the aircraft. When it looked like thunder & lightning they quickly hustled the two F-35's off the runway and into shelter.

    Interesting to was that the had the F-22 Demo team's aircraft taped off and under armed security forces during the show.

    The A-10's are being brought in by the AAM not the air show so they won't be flying in the show. Based on past visits they will be on display.

    Wonder why the F-16's don't go out of Farmingdale. Is it due to runway length? The T-birds have used it in the past.
