The folks behind the New York Air Show announced earlier today that the 2016 show will be headlined by the USAF Thunderbirds. The show will be held on Labor Day weekend, September 3rd and 4th. That is a week later than had been previously announced.

Hi there. I plan to visit US in early September and thought that NY Airshow will be just the event to see. Since I have never been though, on any US airshow, I just got few questions, if you could help me, I'd be obliged. So, is the spotterpack/photo stand really worth the money or will the view from regular audience be sufficient - especially for photo purposes. My lenses vary from 17mm to 500, which is OK for most of air events, apart from quick flybys at high altitude, but these pics always seem boring.
Also - are there some special effects? (flares for instance) deployed sometimes?
Is logistics really complicated? (getting there/parking/travel etc?) - I hope for my family (aunt and uncle) to help, but I am not sure if they will be able to give me a lift (I will be travelling from Medford/Long Island)
Thanks in advance!

Thunderbirds are coming in a little later than anticipated today. Late afternoon or early evening. Not sure if it's the weather. Tomorrow should be beautiful if anyone is looking to catch them as they do a flyby down the Hudson and around the Harbor. As of now Saturday looks to be the day to go. With the storm moving up the coast Sunday could be a washout. If you are going stay tuned to social media. New York Air Show has a great Facebook page with up to date info, great pictures of arriving participants and run some live broadcasts like yesterday's arrival of The Bone and TBird # 8.
Enjoy the show if you are going!!

The downside is that EVERYONE who is planning to go to the airshow will go on Saturday meaning it will be packed to the gills :frown:

That could be true but the latest forecast for the Newburgh area shows a better forecast for Sunday. With storms like this we should just wait and see what happens for an event like this. If you are in a coastal area you do need to be on top of the situation

The weather was perfect this morning but the Thunderbird flew too high. To include the buildings in the foreground, the F-16s became too small in the frame. Well, I guess there are so many things against them buzzing the Hudson River.

I caught a sequence of the camera ship flying from one side of the formation to the other as it turned around to fly over WTC.

The show was pretty good yesterday. Never saw the jelly belly plane before. They did a comedy routine that was very funny. Thunderbird 4 had some issues and had to land. He went back up about 15 minutes later in the spare.

I thought that things flowed better this year. I splurged the extra $5.00 for preferred parking which was worth it as they seemed to make people park further away this year. They were running shuttle buses. We waited about 15 minutes after the show ended to leave, there were many very long lines waiting to get on a bus. Luckily, we only had a short walk to our car and hit zero traffic leaving, which was shocking. the food lines were very long, to the point that it wasn't worth waiting. The show itself was very good, the F18 was set to land, however, they announced that he had a lot of fuel left, so he did a "bolter" and then did several more high speed passes, which will always be a welcomed surprise. I only went on Saturday, so I can't comment on Sunday. The weather started off cool but got warmer as the day progressed, mostly sunny all day.

I too attended Saturday's show. I agree with Joe, things were better organized this year. Preferred parking is the way to go. Quick exit, no traffic. Program advertises next years show on Sept 16 & 17.

Thanks guys!! Great pictures!! I did read some people complaining about the VIP section like the $$ and they ran out of food, etc. They are already advertising for next year but not sure who the headliners will be as both the Angels and TBirds are scheduled elsewhere that weekend!!
