    I'll be stationed over at KFRG, helping out with Civil Air Patrol on the field. As far as I know, this may very well be the first time CAP actually participates IN the Airshow itself, with CAP aircraft. The details are still being worked out.

    Interesting how they have the 106th and Coast Guard, probably just gonna be some C-130 flybys from the 106th. Also with construction at KFRG I have a feeling that activities there will severely hampered, whole taxiway and ramp area by the museum is being worked on currently. I also have a feeling the A-10s will park where the Blues usually do.

    I thought the same thing regarding the A10s. The AAM parking lot is already tight as it is with the construction going on. That whole area will be swamped air show weekend.

    Lots of action at Republic today. The C-47 seems to have returned for the season and was up in the air for a good part of the day. Also caught a warbird (possibly the SBD-5) in the sky and an aerobatic plane doing a speedy pass upon return to the airport.

    Hello all,

    I’d like to attend the JBAS on 05/30/21 (Sunday) but wasn’t able to secure a parking pass. Is anybody planning to go that day that has a spare seat in their vehicle and I can hitch a ride with? I’d gladly pay the parking pass fee. I am fully covid19 vaccinated. Please message or call me at 9172880819 or email me: [email protected] if you can be of any assistance. Thank you.

    Sincerely,
    David Abbey

    Hope you're able to make it down, David.

    AAM Update: 3 Super Hornets are scheduled to arrive at Republic on the morning of Thursday, May 27th. They'll be a static display at the AAM all weekend long.

    On my most recent check to the Bethpage air show website, I noticed that the 106th and Civil Air Patrol were removed from the featured list of performers. Hope that they're still a part of the show.

    I assume the parking passes are for the beach, not for AAM?

    Correct, for the beach only.

    Bethpage just announced that the air show is officially 100% sold out (practice day included)!

    Good to see the 2021 Jones Beach Air show thread up and running here on NYCA again !
    FYI - I heard back from the show and the good news is the A-10 Demo jets will be using Republic Airport for the Air Show and won't going out to ISP with the Thunderbirds.
    I also talked to one of the guys at the AAM, and he said since the 3 Super Hornets will be on static display on the tarmac between Sheltair and AAM, it looks like the A-10s
    will probably be parked on the other side of the airport by the terminal most likely.

    I am able to confirm that Civil Air Patrol will NOT be participating in the show, as performers with aircraft. This change was a relatively late development. However, CAP personnel (myself included) will still be serving on the field at KFRG, as usual.
