Cue the politicians and NIMBYs flipping out: There will be planes racing up, down and around the Hudson River as the fifth race of the Red Bull season is held here on June 19th and 20th, 2010.

Sounds like it will be staged in Liberty State Park. Should be VERY interesting.

most likely that'll be the case. i was told by mike goulian's crew chief that in Abu Dhabi they were expected to land on a barge in the water: 1400ft long, and 20ft wide. must have been putting an extra or an edge down on that when you can't see past your nose.

Looks like an interesting and fun summer coming up. RedBull, Jones Beach, Citywide AF Week and Angels in Coney Island.
Kinda warms the heart and bones on these cold winter days.
:D :D :D :D
