Will there be any foreign vessels this year ? Seems rather small for Fleet Week but I guess that's due to budget cuts :frown:

There is a lot of history with The USS Cole. The ship was the victim of a suicide attack against on 12 October 2000, while it was harbored and being refueled in the Yemen. 17 American sailors were killed, and 39 were injured.

This is the one I am waiting for!! Two years ago they flew in two Navy Seahawks and a CH-53 Sea Stallion at 10AM, then they left and in came the Marines with an Osprey, Cobra, Sea Knight and a UHIN Twin Huey!! After they shutdown they open the field and you can go and get up close and personal with the men and the machines!! Well worth it to set aside the air show for one day!!

There are no fly overs scheduled. Rumor has it a few helicopters from USN & USMC might make a few passes.

It will be interesting to see what aircraft the Marines use for their Aerial Demo at Sewanhaka HS and Orchard Beach Park on Friday,
because they'll probably use same aircraft for their demo at Eisenhower Park on Saturday also:wink:

So far there's been an AH-1 that touched down at Wall Street for a few minutes on Tuesday afternoon, and an SH-60 doing a few turns around the Lady yesterday.

FYI- Heard there was an Osprey flying over Garden City this morning around 11AM,
so there's a chance it might've been used in the Marine Aerial Demo at Sewanhaka HS ??
If not, it could've been the Osprey that came from TEB to do the demo at noon at Jones Beach ?
Anyway, fingers crossed it will be at Eisenhower for the Marine Aerial Demo tomorrow :cool:

The two MH-60s in the picture were the same ships that landed at Eisenhower Park. Talk about being on time. 10PM they were overhead breaking right for their arrival into the LZ. As expected the crews were nothing but wonderful to all, especially to the kids!! There must be a lot of great social media pics circulating tonite of cute kids and combat attired soldiers!! LOL!! And like I wrote about being on time, no sooner did the Seahawks depart the LZ I HEARD, before seeing, two Sea/Supercobras out to the NW!! Ah the sound of those blades slapping the air makes my heart flutter. They buzzed the LZ a number of times tree top altitude then....... in came the 2 SUPER STALLIONS!!!! These copters are BEASTS!! One landed and a squad of Marines ran out of the back ramp to make sure we were all safe. The 2nd CH-53 hovered overhead then broke off and came around to land followed by the Cobras!! Once they all shutdown and tied things down the gates open and the onlookers swarmed the field!! I hung out a bit on the field then headed down to Republic!! Gotta tell you driving on Hempstead Turnpike from the park to 109 is like driving on a road in a 3rd World country!! Awful!!
But enough complaining!! A great job by the USN/USMC, Nassau County and everyone involved to have this year after year!! And its a great event to take the kids!! They are in awe of these aircraft (me too) and its so cute to watch them interact with the crews and soldiers from the aircraft!! Little footnote I heard so many people asking about the Osprey!! Seems the V-22 is very popular with the casual aircraft watcher!!

There are 4x MH-60s, 2x MV-22s, 2x AH-1s, and 2x CH-53Es sitting at Teterboro. Gama/Signature East ramp as per usual.

Does anyone know if the various ships that are in port have helicopters embarked?

The tour of the USS Cole was very nice despite the very long line stretching almost the entire length of the Sullivan Pier. while on line, we saw a Search and Rescue demo and an Osprey circled overhead and headed for Manhattan.
