They still might get the Snowbirds since they had a "TBD for June 26th" on the schedule
they posted at ICAS in December and I also heard the CF-18 Demo could be there also ? :confused:

FB Page for "Thunder" has posters saying no they arent performing!! Just checked the Official Snowbird page and nothing listed foir June 26.

As much as I love both teams(wait is this flame-retardant suit zipped up? Yeah it's zipped up), it would be nice to see something crazy for a change. Crazy like oh, a MiG-29 or Su-30 demo, they got the B-1, how about a Tu-160 flyby:cool:

I'm surprised that the USAF Heritage Flight is still listed. Maybe a surprise is in the works?

I'm tempted to go see that Spitfire and Mustang again. Now what would be REALLY nice would be an air to air shoot with those babies

The term "Thunder" for this year is misleading!! I was really looking forward to this but lack of any military hardware and the date change to Mid-week june made
my decision to let this go was easy!! Too bad as the last three years that I went I had a blast, staying a few nights in A/C. It was a perfect end to the summer to compliment Jones Beach at the beginning!!
DAMN YOU SEQUESTER!! :mad:

If someone wants to shoot from the pier let me know I'll have few media passes for the airshow day.

Pier area is mostly reserved for Media and those with tickets.

Hot damn was that a good show!:biggrin: Sure I missed the power metal, but you can't complain about a free show that includes a Harrier demo. Great seeing you again Chris and nice meeting you (finally) Fred and Spence

Pictures to come as soon as I can get through 'em
