    According to their site, there is also a mobile app available which offers performer info, including a live radio feed. Also noticed they have completely revamped the "logo" for the show.

    Glad they changed the logo. They sure as hell havent changed the lineup. Even the casual observers I bring to JB shows comment "this is the same as last year."

    I still attend (unless it rains out), but the show has been sub-par for the last several years. When it first started there really were a lot more performers, especially in the military jets category. Now? It alternates between the BA's & TB's... and MAYBE you see one other jet demo :( I'll never forget one of those early years, where we had the BA's, CAF Super Hornet, US Super Hornet, A-10, B1-B, Snow Birds, Breitling, and a few other jet teams that I can't quite recall. Still have never seen a B2 in person and wish one would fly at Jones :(

    So I take my vacation around the airshow every year and am a very amateur photographer, does anyone have a good place for me to camp out it ISP without ruffling too many feathers? Prefer the planes to be in motion when I photograph them...

    Last two times Thunderbirds were at ISP the opened an area for viewing. Other than that they will chase you from what I've heard. I know non past threads for Thunderbird shows people have posted where they would try. Think Ronkonkoma Train station was one.

    I'm like you and take vacation around air show time but only for the Blues come to town as its more friendly to spot at Republic

    WOAH! OK so I've just decided I'm NOT going to the beach since the show is a re-run of the past 4 years. But to see a Spit and ZERO?!!!? AAM it will be!

    FYI - I see the 106th Rescue Wing Demo has been taken off the performers list now and a
    Coast Guard search and rescue demo from Cape Cod has been added to the list instead.

    FYI, the FAA posted the TFRs for the show and the air space is closed from 3PM to 4PM
    over Jones Beach on Thurs. afternoon. That's when the T-Birds should be doing their circle
    and arrival maneuvers, where they pick out landmarks to use as they fly, and get familiar
    with the surroundings down at the beach and over the water for their flight demonstration.
