It's never too early to start planning for the 2009 show season :D The Thunderbirds and Blue Angels have released their schedules for next year:
As expected, the Thunderbirds will be at Jones Beach over Memorial Day weekend for the air show. Other shows in our area include Atlantic City in August, as well as Andrews AFB, Dover AFB, and Ocean City, MD. Unfortunately, the closest the Blue Angels get to us is Binghamton, over the July 4th weekend. The Snowbirds haven't published a schedule yet, but a tentative one I saw elsewhere didn't show any nearby performances from them. And from what I'm reading on-line about "defence" appropriations in the UK, I hope you all had a chance to see the Red Arrows this summer, because it's not likely that they will be on this side of the pond again anytime soon. :(
I don't know if there is an air show planned for McGuire in 2009. I haven't seen anything about it yet, but stay tuned for more...
