    Angels at the Main Terminal and Snowbirds/Breitling rear of Sheltair I would guess.

    Great news!!!! I think it will only be participating in USAF Heritage Flight and not a full demo. Either way it's great!!!!!

    Yeah, I saw the official news about Jones Beach getting the F-35 Heritage Flight in Newsday today also.
    It's just too bad the F-35 will be flying out of ACY instead of ISP for the show.

    So its looking more and more that I will be doing BOTH the Practice Show AND the beach, probably Sunday as I like to do the Fleet Week USN/USMC helo demo at Eisenhower Park on Saturday (if still scheduled).

    Will be good to see the F-35, hopefully it will give us some solo hi-speed passes!
