    I am looking forward to returning to the air show and photo pit this year. The tent will be a welcome addition. I would hope arrangements could be made that airport and military vehicles did not park in front of the photo pit as they did last year. They did not obstruct views of the planes, but did clutter the foreground in the shots.

    • NY Air Show says:

      Hey John, we have been working very diligent this year to ensure that the Photo Pit area is as spectacular an experience as we can make it. We are doing our utmost to ensure that there are no obstructed views, but as you can imagine, we do our best to accommodate the needs of many different partners! We’ll discuss what we can do. Looking forward to having you back at the 2018 air show to get some great shots!

    For the 2018 show, will a friend with a general admission ticket and no camera be allowed into the photopit without a photopit ticket? I’m looking to buy a photopit pass but he is buying a general admission ticket and I didn’t want to abandon him while taking images in the pit.

    I agree with you, I had a photo PIT Pass for sunday 7/2 was my first time at an Airshow let alone in the photo PIT.
    They did have a port-a-john and from what I was told by others that was not there last year that was a great help
    Yes cars and the Air boss tower did obstruct our view slightly, it was a bit of a walk/wait to get food or even drink when it was being served 50ft from us. maybe somehow accommodate us..allow the concession near us serving the VIP tent to sell us some items water or drink and a few menu items ..there are only 50 of us at most it wont be a long line. . ..or allow us to hop on the bus that stops at the VIP tent..I have no issue paying a few more buck..especially on a hot summer day and avaoid at long walk down a hot runway caring 20pds of camera gear ..The Blue Angles lined up in front of the crowd and I understand this was the first yr for that, maybe a photo pit in that are too.. maybe a 2nd photo pit on front be nice

    If there is a rainout, is there a refund policy, or if I purchase a ticket for Saturday is there an accommodation for Sunday ?

  5. NY Air Show says:

    There is not shade in the Photo Pit. We want you to have a clear shot of all the performers!

    You guest will be able to get in.

  6. Steve says:

    I have never been to this show. For General Admission, can you bring a fold-up chair, backpack and or coolers?

  7. Lee Ames says:

    I am handicapped and need to be pushed about in a wheelchair by my wife; what sort of ticket does she need to go with me into the Photo Pit? But I’d love to be able to get some great photos with my CANON camera and tele-zoom lenses . . .

    Thanks . . . Lee Ames

    Great show on Saturday. I am so glad the weather held out both days. Took forever to get on buses and out of lot but understandable based on the turnout. Would not deter me from coming back for my third year in 2017.
