      Hey Peter, no the Blue Angels will be parking their vehicles in another area. The Red Arrows will be parking their cars out on on the flight line however this year. The planes are stored in a different area of the air field.

    If you park in the general parking lot, can you walk to the show or due to airport security, have to take the shuttle?

    • NY Air Show says:

      Generally it is $20 per car when you buy in advance, but prices are subject to change. We will be announcing parking sales shortly via email and Facebook.

  2. Kirsten says:

    What is the most direct route from the Albany area?
    Is there handicapp parking & are those in this parking area permitted to go back to their car if needed?

  3. John says:

    Will local hotels have their shuttles running for guests and can we enter the show that way rather than driving and parking?

    • NY Air Show says:

      As far as we know, there are no hotels running shuttles, but you would need to ask the specific hotel at which you are staying to confirm.

  4. John says:

    How can we get to the airshow without a car? We see we can train to Beacon Station from Manhattan but that is a few miles from the airport. How can we get from Beacon Station to the airport without a car?
