Since Coney Island is officially out is anyone planing on making it over to AYC? I'm trying to arrange plans to get over there this year because I went last year and it was one heck of a show.

I may try to hit that up. ACY is pretty convenient to get to, especially from NYC. I took Greyhound from there once to the PA, and they had all brand new buses with power outlets and wifi and it was like $25.
Also, I think Academy has roundtrips for like $30 and most give you a $25 comp at a casino that you can cash in so it's almost free.

Looking at the line-up and the fact that I'm on vacation I'm seriously looking at heading down for the this. Just waiting for a few things to fall in place. I'll probably take the bus and maybe go in the night before.
Just a question did anyone use the "Flightline Club"? Is it worth it?

Might decide to splurge a little.
Thanks.

Flightline Club... it's not worth it.

Gerard, I did the Flight Line Club last year and it wasn't anything spectacular and I'm not doing it again this year. The food wasn't the best and the only good thing about is that you have a little tent you can stand under if it gets a little too hot. As far as the seats and view they are alright. The flight line club is set up in show center and the seats are those plastic lawn chairs. One good benefit is that you are close to the PA system because the PA system at this show is pretty weak so I suggest you bring a little AM radio and tune in to 1400AM.

where exactly is show center? I have only been to AC once, and the only place I know is the Tropicana. Thanks.

Steven Holzinger

The Tropicana is actually south of show center by about a half mile...maybe even a little less. You'll want to use Boardwalk Hall as a show center point. Closest casinos are Trump Plaza and Caesars. The Golden Knights' jump zone is actually adjacent to the said Flightline Club.

Oh and if you've got a Trump One card, you can get reduced parking all the time. Instead of paying whatever ridiculous fee for parking (I think last year it was $25), Trump One members pay $5, and joining is free. I'm sure Caesars and the Tropicana do something similar.

Guys thanks for the replies concerning "Flightline". As of now it looks like I'm heading in Tuesday afternoon and staying the night so I dont have to rush Wed morning.
Also Greyhound has a nice round-trip for $35 and lots of departures after the show. FYI -Wed morning they have a 7:30AM bus that will get you there by 10ish. That is the earliest bus
unless you want to leave at 1:30AM. And considering the real flying doesnt start until 11:17AM (Fighting Falcons) thats not so bad.

Yeah I went there early last year and the roads werent bad but I felt like crap at the end of the day. This year I'm gonna stay at trump on Tuesday, Wednesday and then come back Thursday. It should be a lot better that way.

Yes it should. That is one of the reasons I'm letting Greyhound doing the driving for me. Sit back, pop on iPod and close my eyes.

Hotel prices are jacked this year!

I was trying to stay at the Trop but they're asking close to $200/night. I picked up a room @ the Hilton for around $120/night.

Chris S
08-05-2010, 12:30 PM
FYI- You can still get a decent room for $75 /night if you're willing to stay a little inland,
that's only about a 10 minute ride to the Boardwalk also :wink:

I really wanted to stay at the Trop again but the rates were $199/night. It was easy with the kiddies last year as my wife just took them to the pool deck.

I'm on the beach either way!:biggrin:

This is the first I heard that the Coney show was canceled. What happened? Couldn't they get sponsors? I was looking forward to this being a Brooklyn resident.

Gerard, I got that info from the airshow organizer who made a post on Airshow Buzz. They must have updated it after he posted. Also I believe 1700 is when the TFR expires. He said they have until 1700 just in case of bad weather or other issues.

Ken, that enlistment ceremony is when the swear in new airman to the USAF right before the Thunderbirds are about the perform.

Here is the updated schedule: http://www.atlanticcitynj.com/!userfil...hedule-rev2.pdf

They will also have a practice show on Tuesday but the flybys usually do not participate.

I'm heading down with the tribe in tow tomorrow morning. Since I missed Westfield, I'm hoping to catch some of the demo's practicing on Tuesday. A lot depends on the wife's mood though.

A bunch of people are probably meeting up at Hooters for wings on Tuesday after practice. If you're around, please join us! Look for the Big Bald loudmouth with 2 cloned offspring in close proximity.

LOL sounds good but my bus doesnt get in till 4 (depending traffic) then over to hotel to check in. I was just at the Hooters in Baltimore Inner Harbor and the Sam Adams Cherry Wheat
on draft was incredible. As were the wings and waitresses :wink::wink::cool:

Someone wrote that Florida Avenue was Show Center (By Trump Casino) and it looks like from Mapquest Aerial view there is more beach to the south of that
location than to the north. There are also a couple of Piers to the north of that also, not sure how much obstruction in viewing they would have though I wouldnt
think so with the aircraft up high.
Also weather wise temps look to be running cooler than usual for this time of year with highs only in the low 70s. Rain should hold off for the show but there possibly
might be some showers tomorrow for those coming in early.

I will drive to AC tomorrow morning, then back in the evening. Because my 7D developed a sensor malfunction at Westfield air show, I will take my old XTi to the show. If you see someone with a big 100-400L on a tiny XTi, that would be me. :wink:

Post show review:
All demo teams flew their low show.
Golden Knights did not jump due to weather.
The HU-25 got caceled
The 103rd SAR demo got canceled
The NJSP Helios got canceled
The smoke squadron did not do their "smoke demo".

Even though the weather held the show back a bit it was still great!

Oh and the freshly squeezed lemonade with vodka was also quite good. :cool::cool:

The Supercobra was actually canceled this weekend. The smoke demo involves their C-130 and I believe it was going to write "Happy 100th anniversary Atlantic City".

Also that Harrier was loud!!!!!

Yeah I went there early last year and the roads werent bad but I felt like crap at the end of the day. This year I'm gonna stay at trump on Tuesday, Wednesday and then come back Thursday. It should be a lot better that way.

In retrospect I should have stayed an extra day. I was pretty beat at the end of the show especially as I was dragging around my backpack with my stuff from staying overnite. Also
there was some great live music on the Boardwalk by the old Convention Center AND those Vodka Lemonades. Mmmm mmmm :biggrin:
But it worked out well. I was going to get on the 5PM bus but the 4:30 had extra seats so I hopped on board and we made great time until we got to the Lincoln Tunnel exit off I95. But
big shoutout to the Greyhound driver. He found a shortcut that definitely saved time, then a walk to Penn Station, minimal delay on the LIRR and I was home by 8:40. Not bad and it
sure beats driving. Much more relaxing.

But big shoutout to the Greyhound driver. He found a shortcut that definitely saved time.

IMO Greyhound is the way to go on trips to AC on their lucky streak buses. You may not get the $25 cash-back bonus from the casino like you do with Academy, but the wifi, power outlets and nicer seats make up for it.

I was at the airshow for a little - had a comped room at Caesars - but didn't hang around for much. I had logged 14 hours of poker the night before and was exhausted!

Hey where are your priorities? :biggrin:
And yes both rides were comfortable and considering NY/NJ traffic pretty fast.

Well at least you didn't have to wake up early and then come home late. And taking the bus and LIRR takes the extra stress off ya. I'm glad everything worked out for you.

Speaking of the Harrier:

Great shot of Rob Hollands MX-2. I had my binocs with me and had him scoped out blasting in from the south right on the deck.
His flying was awesome and breathtaking as he dove to what seemed like inches off the water before gaining altitude.

Wow guys, beautiful photos! Would love to see more!

Do you think the NYC show at coney will really happen next year, or is this a dead dream?
