    Yeah, since the T-Birds will be flying all the way from Vegas to ISP on Thursday,
    they probably won't be arriving until late in the morning or early afternoon if all
    goes well and then they'll go up again and practice over Jones Beach from 3 - 4PM.

    You may be thinking of the Blue Angels who typically fly down from here (in the alternate years when they're in town for the Airshow) for the Naval Academy Graduation.

    According to the Show's FB page and these cool photos they posted, the Red Bull Helicopter
    has arrived also and it did a little teaser show in NYC over the Hudson this past weekend >>>>

    P40 American Dream arrived at the AAM about 2 hours ago and is being stored inside the museum.

    Messaged the airport and they said that the Thunderbirds will be located in a different area this year with limited space and they will not be able to have a viewing area.

    Just another reason why the T-Birds should've gotten a waiver to use Republic Airport this year!
    The T-Birds are missing the boat once again when it comes to public relations and recruiting for
    this show with the people and most importantly kids who want to see and meet them up close !!

    Very true Chris.

    Also asked them if they had an ETA for their arrival. They said that unfortunately they do not get an exact time on their arrival but its usually in the afternoon. That would make sense for only having a 3-4 TFR.

    FYI - I was trying to find out arrival time info for the Super Hornet from Republic Airport,
    but the only info they had right now was that the F-18s would be parked over at Sheltair
    for the show this weekend.
