  1. Brian says:

    I would like to fly in for the show in a GA aircraft. Is there a provision in place to allow this? What time will the field be NOTAM’d closed?

  2. James says:

    Will you be able to take pictures from the general admission area? The Photo pit for Saturday is already sold out.

    • NY Air Show says:

      Hey James, yes, you can get some good shots from the general admissions area, though we recommend getting there early because you’ll want to get a good front-row position. The Photo Pit provides the best shots because they are positioned a little closer to show center and further out into the exhibition area. You might also consider doing the Photo Pit on Sunday, if you are interested.

    • Brian says:

      I think you are thinking of the Blue Angel’s Fat Albert JATO demonstration, unfortunately they no longer do that because they don’t have any more JATO rockets!

    • Rogo says:

      C-17’s don’t use rockets. You’re thinking C-130’s and JATO’s and they are awesome to see!!!! Saw it when I worked in Antartica.

  3. MIchael Hubert says:

    Where can I pre-pay for parking. There is one link on this site but it is not working. Should I check back as we get closer to the show?

    • NY Air Show says:

      Hey Michael – yes! Parking will be available for purchase starting around mid-August. Stay tuned, we will do a posting on our Facebook page as a reminder to everyone as well.

    • NY Air Show says:

      Hey Stephen, stay tuned! We’ll be announcing further performers as we move closer to the date of the show, but it promises to be a phenomenal line-up!

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

  4. 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.
