      • Alvin Cheung says:

        Please have either F22 or F35 performing in the show, if they both do it will be simply PERFECT!!!

  1. Norm G. says:

    are the Thunderbirds still coming…? I heard they cancelled all their shows due to the recent loss of TB #4.

    • NY Air Show says:

      Hi Norm, YES, the Thunderbird are a go for the NY Show. They just jumped back into their show schedule this past week. We are looking forward to having them in our upcoming show, while also honoring and recognizing the loss of their colleague.

    • NY Air Show says:

      We’ve got the performers announced-to-date are above. The schedule will be released once the entire line up is complete, about 2 weeks prior to the show.

    • NY Air Show says:

      Guests are allowed to bring in a container of water up to 1 liter per guest. We cannot guarantee access to water fountains, but there will be many vendors with water available for purchase.

  2. Roger says:

    Loved the show! Thanks to all those who made it happen, especially the volunteers! I noticed the B-25 was not there as well as a noticeably missing Blue Angel #3! What happened?

        • NY Air Show says:

          They performed in 2017. AN F-35 may be on static display. Will know more 30 days before the show.

          • Anthony says:

            You’re going to lose revenue if there’s no F-35…but an F-22 would make the show a cash cow 🙂

            How about F-16’s per the norm?…also a detail to TBD 30 days prior?

          • NY Air Show says:

            Thanks for your feedback, Anthony! We have a really great line up of static displays that are enjoyed by all guests, but as you can imagine, they are subject to the availability of the plane and its crew. That’s why we typically email and post that list to our ticket holders within the 30 days prior to the show, as the final list is confirmed.

  3. Anthony S. says:

    Can you still see the planes on the ground even if I purchased a general admission ticket? Or is that just for flight line ticket holders?

  4. Matt says:

    Is there motorcycle parking available for a lesser rate. I would love to come but cannot justify paying as much to park as to attend. Thanks

          I find it hilarious that every year you guys do a good job of posting what is prohibited and what is allowable to bring to the shows. And every year people ask the stupidest questions that are clearly answered on your website. Read first, ask questions later…….. Keep up the good job guys.

          • NY Air Show says:

            We appreciate your support! <3 <3 <3 But we also don't mind at all making sure that we answer the questions of each and every guest that attends our show. We're always happy to ensure every guest feels answered so they can enjoy the great line-up of performers! 🙂

  5. Dave Mc says:

    We are looking forward to Sunday’s show but may need to leave early. I see the show is between 12pm-4pm. Can you tell me an approximate time the Blue Angels will be performing? Thanks for this wonderful forum to ask questions!

  6. email says:

    Is there parking available along the streets inside and outside of the airport
    In other words Free Parking

  7. Mike says:

    What is the cost of a General Admission ticket for Active Duty Military, Retired Military or Veterans?

    • NY Air Show says:

      $22.50 for Adult and $11.25 for Children 6-12. Children under 6 are free. That’s a 25% savings off the day of event price.

    • NY Air Show says:

      IF you purchase Flight Line Club VIP tickets, you will receive one VIP Parking Pass with your order.

  8. Jane says:

    We are very interested in attending the show but would like to know the price per person. Who will be performing on each day, and what is the parking situation (how is it operated)?

  9. Dave says:

    What happens if it rains on the day you purchase tickets for. Will you be allowed to attend the next day?

  10. Mary says:

    We have a young child (who LOVES the Blue Angels) so trying to understand logistics… Can you leave the area once you enter? Are there places to sit down? Is there shade from the sun? Can you bring in your own food and water? Are there any restrictions on strollers? Is there any difference in the show line up between Sat. and Sun? Are the Blue Angels performing both days?

    • NY Air Show says:

      That’s great, I think he’ll have a ball.
      1- Re-entry into the show is not permitted.
      2- Spectators in General Admission are asked to bring their own seating. The Flight Line Club will have plenty of seats available of you decide to go the VIP route.
      3- We’re at an airport and shade is at a minimum. In General Admission, folks try to find a spot to set up their chairs under the aircraft wings that will be on display. In the Flight Line Club, there is shaded seating for all.
      4- Outside coolers and food are not allowed. Each customers is allowed to bring in one sealed bottle of water up to 1 liter in size.
      5- Strollers are allowed and will be subject to security inspection upon entry.
      6 & 7- All performers are scheduled to perform on both Saturday and Sunday.

        You know there is no listing on the web site except for the above reply note to a ticket holder of what is not allowed in. Last year this was a huge issue at the gates. Please post on the web site and at least at the parking lots what is not allowed in. This way the ticket holders won’t be forced to return to their cars or loose their items at security check.

  11. Mike W. says:

    Are the performers the same on both days of the show? That is, if we attend on both Saturday and Sunday are we going to see the same thing?
