    Hi, How are you? I will be attending west point football game this sat. 9/15/18. With a Large group of friends consisting of many military veterans, I believe the game starts at noon. Will the Thunderbird doing a flyby for us at the football game that afternoon? If not, this is my request to please fulfill this wish of my mine, I am sure everyone there would go wild. Thank you so much.

      Hey Stephen, unfortunately, the Thunderbirds are going to be occupied at the Air Show getting ready for their flights at that time! Our show runs from noon to four, so unfortunately the game is happening right at the same time. That being said, we are excited to have the West Point Parachute team out here this year! Showing our military pride. 🙂

    Good afternoon,

    I am planning on attending the event for this Saturday, September 15th 2018 but intended on arriving after 2pm. I was just wondering if by this time I may have missed some of the performances or events. Please advise as I don’t see specific times or a chronological schedule of events.

    Thank you!!

      Hey Kelly, 2 pm will be about half-way through the flight performances, so you might want to arrive at or before the flight performances start at noon. {lease see the first question on our FAQ page.

      Hey Thomas & Judy, yes, the show is rain or shine, so long as we still have clearance to fly! That being said, weather forecast is still great for this weekend.
