    They still might get the Snowbirds since they had a "TBD for June 26th" on the schedule
    they posted at ICAS in December and I also heard the CF-18 Demo could be there also ?

    As much as I love both teams(wait is this flame-retardant suit zipped up? Yeah it's zipped up), it would be nice to see something crazy for a change. Crazy like oh, a MiG-29 or Su-30 demo, they got the B-1, how about a Tu-160 flyby

    I'm tempted to go see that Spitfire and Mustang again. Now what would be REALLY nice would be an air to air shoot with those babies

    I agree, Jim Beasley's Spitfire and Mustang demos are a AMAZING and REAL treat to see !!
    FYI, according to the USAF Heritage Foundation the HF will probably be 2 - P-51s

    The term "Thunder" for this year is misleading!! I was really looking forward to this but lack of any military hardware and the date change to Mid-week june made
    my decision to let this go was easy!! Too bad as the last three years that I went I had a blast, staying a few nights in A/C. It was a perfect end to the summer to compliment Jones Beach at the beginning!!
    DAMN YOU SEQUESTER!!
