    That would be awesome if they are going to be based out of Republic! Looked on Twitter and Facebook but just found that #8 was conducting site visits, no specific locations.

    I wouldn't hold out hope that the Thunderbirds will use Republic. I would bet on McArthur and then JFK. The runways at Republic are to short for the Thunderbirds to use.

    If # 8 did indeed come in, and I can't confirm the rumor then it was just a one time thing for the site visit.

    It would be nice!! It was 2009 when they last used FRG.
    Last years show with the Angels, Snowbirds and the Breitling Team all staged at FRG will be hard to surpass!!

    Hhmmm... I know this is our hometown airshow and I'll support it but, they really need to start and mix it up a little bit. They're basically re-running the 2015 show sans the Breitling Team. (Or for that matter the 2014 and 2016 shows just swap out the Blue's). I wish they would take a page from the playbook of the Quonset airshow. It seems like every year they change up the civilian acts. And as far as the military demos go? We'll see....

    C'mon this is New York! The show is attended by 400K people. Don't we rate a B-2, B-52 or B-1 flyby?!? It would also be nice if they put together something special like Grumman flight.

    Fifi's visit was sponsored by the American Airpower Museum, not the air show, so there was no obligation to visit the beach.

    I remember that, was just saying it was in the area and the airshow was unable to get it or had no interest in having it participate.

    Thats why I enjoy the Atlantic City show!! They mix it up with helo flybys and get some of the big metal out of McGuire!!
