They keep saying it should all be good by Memorial Day and as long as we dont get any more crazy or destructive storms by then we should be good to go!!

so it looks like you can add the Super Hornet Demo to performers list also. :cool:

Thanks! I am off to an early start this year and I am in the middle of adding some improvements.

With the T-birds and Superbug confirmed I can't complain especially since other shows are not as lucky.

Too bad about FRG if indeed true. I just hope they use LGA :tongue: but technically, they could operate out of McGuire and still make the show center roughly on time... that would be sad.

Hey guys!

I apologize for the lack of updates but I have been extremely busy the past couple of weeks and on top of that nyasinfo.com crashed.

As far as airshow news, it has been pretty dry. It is confirmed we will not get the F-22 (not unexpected at all), and that Sean Tucker (as Chris mentioned above) and John Klatt will be performing in the show this year. We will hear a lot more info and possibly the announcement of some first time guests at the Jones Beach airshow in the coming weeks.

Also for people who just have this thread bookmarked or if you somehow missed it - History Under The Stars 2013 has been announced and more info is in this thread. (http://nycaviation.com/forum/threads/45113-History-Under-the-stars-2013-NY-Airshow-Night-Photography-Event)

That is pretty much all for now, I will hopefully get the site back up and running this weekend.

Ken, sorry to hear your nysainfo.com site crashed. Good luck getting the site back up.
FYI- just saw that Jones Beach is on Matt Chapman's 2013 Air Show schedule also!:cool:

If we're lucky hopefully Matt will be flying with his new formation team "The 4CE" at JB also?!!:wink:
Here's a cool preview video of "The 4CE" with Matt Chapman, Rob Holland, Jack Knutson, and Bill Stein

I am still actively working on getting the site back up, it's just that things don't want to go my way :mad:

Hopefully I can get it operational by this weekend since I am not going anywhere with 12-14 inches of snow coming our way.

Just wondering what is going to occur if/ when the sequestration cuts kick in...I am guessing no Thunderbirds? (which is nothing compared to the damage that will be done to the operational readiness of the combat units)......

Unfortunately if sequestration happens many shows/demos will be cancelled. For now there is nothing we can do but sit down and watch what happens.

Well the CNO is already reducing the CAG presence in the gulf to one. The USS Teddy Roosevelt's return to service is being delayed as is the refueling of the Lincoln and the deployment of the Truman. It would be disappointing but not surprising at this point.

the news keeps getting worse unfortunately after hearing Langley has already canceled their show !!:frown:

Some wishful thinking but its possible only the military base airshows are being cancelled as they consider the civilian site shows "good for recruiting"!! Did read that somewhere!!
Wonder if this will effect Fleet Week and everything that goes along with it!?
We shall see!! :frown::mad:

I wonder if everything gets wiped due to the sequester, if we will still get the Canadian planes and private planes?

dekdawg21
02-27-2013, 09:06 PM
Hope they'd keep it going. They only thing with private planes though is is it still worth putting on seeing that attendance was down in 2011 when there were no Thunderbirds or Blue Angels. Bring FiFi back!

Correct, while the order for ceasing support for active-duty, reserve, and Guard units (i.e. 106th, F-22, ect;) is effective today, it doesn't go in effect for the Thunderbirds until April 1st.

Fighting_falcon_51
03-01-2013, 09:04 PM
* The U.S Air Force Thunderbirds (http://www.afthunderbirds.com/site/) (effective 4/1) and 106th Air National Guard SAR Demo HH-60/HC-130 (http://www.106rqw.ang.af.mil/) (effective 3/1)have both been cancelled due to sequestration. It is possible that they could still perform should the funding be restored.

** At this time the U.S. Navy is canceling aerial support on a month-by-month basis. We will find out the fate of the F/A-18C TACDEMO (http://www.public.navy.mil/airfor/vfa106/Pages/default.aspx) in late April or early May.

*** At this time, participation from the U.S. Army Golden Knights (http://armygk.armylive.dodlive.mil/) seems unlikely.

I have more information about this posted on: http://nyasinfo.com/?p=82

Although since we are shooting at a high level here, you forgot to add the F-117 and throw in a U-2 for good measure.

No military performers, but since the show doesn't use a military airfield, there's no de jure reason that the show would have been cancelled. The organizers could have chosen to cancel based on the potential of low attendance, but it looks like they've chosen not to. Having an airshow at Jones Beach this year is also a huge vote of confidence to show that area beaches are going to be open for the summer post-hurricane.

The same would apply to any of the private shows not held in conjunction with a military airfield (Chicago Air and Water, Atlantic City, and so on). I actually wonder if AC would move to a weekend timing this year. The whole reason they've always had for doing a midweek show is because it basically guarantees having a jet team. On-base shows (Langley, Dover, Pax, Quonset, Oceana, etc) are all toast. This was already an off-year for McGuire and Andrews.

Without sounding too partisan, I find it pathetic that this Country is in such a poor state that we have to rely on the Russians to take us to space, the Canadians to do our airshows, yet we can manage to put a record number of people on food stamps and hand out free cell phones like candy.

For the first time in my adult life, Im ashamed of my Country.

Because the politicians were not involved in the NHL labor dispute. This whole sequester BS is all political. Neither side likes the other, so they wont work with each other.
In the end it doesn't affect them, so they DO NOT GIVE A $H!T about the US Citizens. All they care about is how they look in the press. This country is tumbling towards disaster and they are all showing a blind eye, because:

1) "They are in charge, so what could be going wrong?"

2) They are getting paid, so what do the taxpayers of this great nation have to complain about?

3) In the end "Our side has to look better than their side" no matter what. The people will re-elect us next time, all we have to do is attack our opponents character.

I've lost a lot of faith in the country over the last decade. I honestly think it's time to get rid of the political party system. Everyone registered voter in this country is an American. We should be fighting for our survival as Americans. Create real sustainable jobs, end the "stop-gap" job. "We created "X" number of jobs repairing the roads in X state" - okay, when the road work is complete, they are unemployed again.

STOP giving money overseas, when we are in a sequester! $60mil to Syria, $250mil to Egypt....really? Why? To keep good relations? Look inside your own borders...people are struggling, look at the NJ shore, Staten Island, The Rockaways, Long Beach. These are people who were devastated by a natural disaster, and they have to jump through hoops to get a fraction of the money they need to rebuild. Yet, we want to help Syrian dissidents overthrow their government. It's sickening.

Sorry for the off-topic rant. I'm just fed-up.

Interesting post just sent out by the AAM on Facebook!! Looks like they are working very hard behind the scenes to make this years JB airshow very special especially with the probably lacking of US military aircraft!!
Kinda hinted about more Warbirds and armor coming in for the show which I didnt realize is the 10th Anniversary of the JB Airshow!!
Sounds good to me!!

If nothing else, I'm hoping that they are still touring it when they make it up this way in the fall. As of right now, they only have it on the schedule for their tour stops though mid/late April, though they haven't even announced much past early June yet.

BTW, I see the Jones Beach Air Show site have updated their 2013 logo and morphed
the F-18 they used for the Blue Angels into a Canadian CF-18 with red trim !! Ha !!
They should've used a gray F-18 with a Red Maple leaf on the top just like the 2002 CF-18 had.
http://hazersflightline.com/2002demoeast.htm

Anyway, the new 2013 CF-18 Demo Team paint scheme should be unveiled shortly,

For a 10-year show, Jones Beach is going to be a let down. I don't blame anyone but the US Government. The military wants to perform, as well as protect out country, but our elected leaders will not allow them, due to not being able to sit down and work together. Any Elected official who thinks that Sequestration will help this country is out of their mind! It is setting us up for one hell of a downturn (on top of what we already have been through). All that campaign BS about "working together across the aisle" is just that BS, when will the people of this great land wake up?

I wonder what it would cost to sponsor a team like the Blues. Now before you think im crazy, I dont think it would be as horrible as it sounds. I think the pilots are already required to log X amount of seat time per month, so this is the time they could use to train. If Jones beach charged an extra $10 a car plus local sponsors, I think we could be looking at a pretty significant amount of $. if we assume 800K people, and 3 per car, thats $2.67M in parking alone. ... actually, maybe it isnt doable, lol.

Seems like it'd be a big bill to raise even if they charged extra to get it. would people who are not die hards want to pay $20 (i know i would) after sitting in all the traffic to get down there? there has been talk of people willing to put up money to have them but the Blues haven't said if they'd even consider that!

As far as sponsorship goes, maybe the BFCU could work with the AAM and get the Collings Foundation to come down with their F-4 Phantom, A-4 Skyhawk and F-100?! There is also another F-100 Hun out there which appeared up at the Barnes show a year ago. A Vietnam Vets salute! Throw in some UH-1's...

My second vote would be a Grumman Cat gathering. Bring in as many flyable Wildcats, Hellcats, Bearcats as you can. How about 3-4 P-47's? A salute to LI Aviation!

Cmon BFCU lets make this 10 year anniversary show something special!

The problem is everyone has the same idea about bringing in other warbirds, and unless you have things in the works already, it's probably going to be tough to find someone free this late in the game. I've heard about some things the AAM was looking at, but nothing definite at this point.

Landing Lights
04-19-2013, 12:05 PM
The Collings Foundation has some great stuff, but they tour it pretty heavily around the country during the warm weather months. Its not just as simple as flying it down from the home base in Mass. The aircraft are likely already committed to other engagements, even if they aren't showing up on the website.

On a related note, they just released another block of dates for the Wings of Freedom Tour, through late August. Looks like they may be making it back up this way for September yet again.

Thinking of other headlining acts is a fool's errand. We are all geeks and would love to see those planes, but the average joe could not care less. They aint sitting in traffic for hours to see a bunch of old WWII planes...they want the Blues and/or T-Birds. Not to downplay those aircraft, or say that if the airshow consisted of other acts it would not get a decent crowd and be worthwhile to see It would be. But the big time military acts ARE the headliners and bring in the really big crowds. There's just no getting around that.

Good points and even though we probably won't have to deal with really BIG crowds at Jones Beach this year without the Thunderbirds, I still expect ALOT of Diehard Air Show fans from all over the Northeast will be coming to Jones Beach just to see the CF-18 Demo, since it will be one of their ONLY opportunities to actually see a military jet demo anywhere in the US this year !! :cool:

I know it's wishful thinking, but I hope the Jones Beach Air Show can still contact either the Military Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach about possibly getting their RARE Me-262, de Havilland Mosquito or Focke-Wulf FW190 to fly in the show OR Art Nalls about booking his Sea Harrier Demo !!
Fingers crossed !! :wink:

Bones
04-19-2013, 05:25 PM
A mosquito,a 190,and a harrier, that would be a great show in it self fingers def crossed,but reguardless of of others showing up its still going to be a great show.

Yes, Bill, as I said, the AAM is looking at options for other displays, however it's pretty late in the game for anything spectacular. Every air show that didn't originally have the T-birds or Blues scheduled had already been working deals for available war birds and civilian acts.

Then using that line of reasoning....why even bother having an airshow?

Make it like some other shows around the country that are not held every year, "No Team...No Show".

It is a NY State park and nice hot weather on the traditional start of summer will draw crowds, and the state will get it's $10 per car anyhow.

If you are talking about having an airshow then something needs to be added to make up for some burner. It has become a tradition and you can count on adding a few thousand people who want to enjoy some aerial activity. I forgot about Art Nalls Sea Harrier, that would be a great headliner! I still love the Black Diamond Jet team.

Totally agree!! The sequester has put a damper on the event!! Not to say the AAM and the people involved with the show arent doing a fantastic job working to get a suitable show going but the lack of jet thunder and military participation hurts!! Sadly i decided to stay off the beach and just hang out at Republic on Sunday!! In the past I'd be off Fri-Mon to partake in all the fun but this year I'm actually working Fri AND Sat!!

Is there two performing or one??

It's usually one that performs. The 2nd plane is usually used for a back up in case of mechanical probs.

Any chance the CF-18 may pull double duty (two performances on both Saturday and Sunday) on the weekend?
The Rhode Island Air Show usually had something similar to this, but those were USN F-18's.

Chuck Aaron and the Red Bull Helicopter came in around 2:25. Parked on the north side of Sheltair. Team Klatt went up for a photo mission around 1PM. With both their aircraft and a Bonanza photo plane they headed out
to the south shore then up to the north shore for photo ops!! Weather aint that great. They had a reporter aboard the 2 seater, possibly one of the News12 cuties. :cool: Later the solo ship did a few more flights and Team Oracle also flying with their photo plane.

The fences are just a bit too small for most lenses.

Later in the day, usually the F18 is the last act, so basically 1:30-2:00pm to get a somewhat good spot. Thats my opinion. For the best spot, I recommend a spot along the fence on New Highway next to runway 32, bring earplugs for the kiddies! Some one correct me if i don't speak the truth.
