New York Air Show High in The Sky August 29 - 30
Not all the action at the New York Air Show will be in the air on August 29-30th at Stewart International Airport. There will be plenty to see on the ground too, as a number of aircraft will be on display for visitors to explore.
The aircraft display and exhibit area will encompass more than 50 acres on the south side of Stewart International Airport, and will feature military and civilian aircraft as well as exhibits, displays, simulators and more.
Among the aircraft that will be on static display on the air field:
· F-15 Eagle
· F-16 Thunderbird
· C-17 Globemaster III
· HH-60 Blackhawk helicopter
· Lakota Helicopter
· AV-8B Harrier Jet
· C-130 Hercules
· UH-1 Huey Helicopter
Other static displays will also be added in the next few weeks.
“This is a great opportunity to get up close to some of the best aircraft our U.S. Military has to offer,” said Bryan Lilley, president of the New York Air Show. “We hope people will come out early, not to just beat the traffic, but to really enjoy all that this air show is going to offer them in terms of displays and exhibits.”
Vendors will also be throughout the display and exhibit area selling food, drinks and other items for the crowd to enjoy. The Air Force Performance Lab will be on hand to show possible recruits what it’s like to fly a fighter jet during combat. Other hands on training includes a Pull Up challenge and cognitive skills tests. A Kids Zone will have plenty of activities to entertain the kids during the air show.
The New York Air Show will also feature demonstrations from four branches of the U.S. Military including the Marine Corps’s Harrier Jet, the Air Force’s F-22 Raptor, the Navy’s F-18F Super Hornet and the Navy Seals Leap Frogs as well as the Army’s West Point Parachute Team. Civilian aircraft will also be performing including the GEICO Skytypers, Mike Wiskus in the Lucas Oil Pitts, the Horsemen in their P-51 Mustangs, and the B-25 Mitchell Bomber Panchito.
