    2024 Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach - May 25th and 26th

    Well, that's partly true... the airshow at Stewart Airport upstate charges for shows, but they are only marginally better than what we get at Jones. If money is the only issue, then they can charge...

    Yeah, but WHY?! We don't even get the snowbirds coming down anymore... :( I'll never forget that Jones Beach show SEVERAL years ago when we had a TON of military jets, even a B-1 Lancer! That was...

    Military activity?

    Just went outside for a smoke and saw six contrails at high altitude very closely grouped together. Very high up could not identify the aircraft. Very thick contrails, too close together for civil...

    Why can't the F-22s & F-35s fly past KFRG on their way back to ISP? It's not like it's out of their way!!

    I live in the Greenlawn area and heard some thunder at 9:05 this morning. Too wooded to see anything, but it went on for ages and didn't sound real close.
  10. F22 & F35 at ISP?

    F22 & F35 at ISP?

    Is there no B-17 at the AAM this year? I drove by earlier and did not see one.

    I couldn't get tickets this year.... This makes 2 years of no show for me, for a show I've attended every single year since inception :(

    I've been wondering the same, these airshow threads and the FRG Notables thread are fairly dead now :(



    Yeah, it's just that I don't understand this requirement when the stated specs are:...

    Wow, that IS tacky, and totally ruins the illusion! I know they need to get some extra advertising dollars, but there has to be a better solution... placards INSIDE when touring at the museum(s), or...

    So... The Air Force's premier demo team & PR machine won't fly out of the airport that hosts an awesome museum, won't have a viewing area at the airport they ARE staging out of, and won't even...

    I still attend (unless it rains out), but the show has been sub-par for the last several years. When it first started there really were a lot more performers, especially in the military jets...

    Well I can't make the show today because I have to man the store. I was planning to be closed tomorrow so I could make the show on Sunday like I normally do but it looks like it's going to be a...
