Yes it was the only way they could get the Angels. I gather both them and TBirds unavailable on those Sept dates.

F-16 and F-35A are confirmed; demo from the F-16 and no demo from F-35A (maybe a pass or two but it will fly a Heritage Flight with the F-16 and a P-51).

Man, this looks like the show to be at! Wish I could make it seeing that Jones Beach look a little on the tame side this year.

I know it's only their 2nd year but will there be a Practice Show on Friday?

This is actually the 3rd year in a row for the show up at Stewart and they've had a Friday practice show
the previous 2 years so I'm sure they'l be having their usual Fri. practice show again this year.

Thanks Chris. Is the same parking and viewing areas available that day also?

Friday practice day is usually only open to Media and invited guests inside, but I'm sure you'll
be able to find a place on the outside of the airport to view the practice show from a distance.

Saw the arrival on Facebook live. Nice Fly Over
Did read that they had issues in Latrobe over the weekend
Saturday # 2 hit a bird and had to land
Sunday morning # 3 had a leak in fuel control system and was grounded and during show on Sunday # 4 had a boost issue mid flight and had to land
These birds are keeping the mechanics busy thats for sure!! Great job keeping them going!

That's crazy, saw they only had 5 jets and heard about the bird strike but didn't know what happened to the other. And the blues arrived really early, guess it wasn't worth flying home when your next show is next door.
NY Airshow is doing a job job going live on Facebook!

With storms around they moved the Angels up from 3 to 2PM. They got up but clouds kept them low and not sure it was a full show. Radar shows it raining there now so hopefully they got the rest of the show in. Also from the NY Air Show FB page the B-25 had to cancel their performance today. Tomorrow's weather looks much better but hot!!

So, any reviews, thoughts, complaints about the show? Followed it on FB and Sunday looked to be the better of the two days.
Thanks

Some some complaints on FB about parking, that seems to be their biggest hurdle since they started.

It's one of those rules about airshows. The parking will move quickly or the security will move quickly, but never both*. I didn't go to either day because I wasn't going to pay $40 for admission plus parking for what was in reality one of the smaller shows on the calendar.

[*Except McGuire, where the answer is always neither]

Thanks guys. The whole money making atmosphere of the whole show kinda turns me off. I'm going to A/C for Thunder and hopefully to Andrews in September. Yes I'm spending $$$ on gas and hotel and but for me that's money well spent and A/C staying two night and DC 3 nights, mini vacations for me.

Awful news. The USMC KC-130 that crashed in Mississippi yesterday afternoon killing all souls on board was based out of Stewart AFB in Newburgh. Thoughts and prayers to those service members.

The guy who runs this one also owns the airshows at Fort Lauderdale, Ocean City, Melbourne FL, and Atlanta. Unlike the military-sponsored shows, this is a straight profit-making entity. I'd love to know how the finances work regarding the Blues or other military assets participating.

I wonder how it works too. I looked through the Blues manual and unless i'm misreading it looks like the show promoter has to the supply fuel, smoke oil, hotel rooms for the team, as well as all the rental cars. If that's the case and without a big sponsor to pick up the bill that adds up.
