You can probably skip this show if you are a photographer. This is tucked into the prohibited items list:
Prohibited items include but are not limited to:
...
Professional cameras that could potentially block the view of other spectators, professional audio or video recording devices, tripods, and drones.
I have no idea how they plan to define "professional" cameras, but I certainly won't be making a long drive just to potentially be turned away for having a zoom lens or SLR. There are dozens of other airshows where I can take photos freely.

I appreciate that @schultzairshows checks in here to share info from time to time; I hope he can clarify

Guys,

I'm checking with the track on the "Professional Cameras" comment on their website. Doesn't make sense to me so as soon as I get info, I'll pass it along here.

Glad to hear it isn't coming from your side. I can see some concerns with grandstand seating instead of the traditional field and I know the venue usually deals with major sporting stuff and all of the associated rules around those. Thanks for checking into it for us!

Camera restrictions will NEVER come from Schultz Airshows.
The origin of the company started with a camera in my hand at dozens of airshows back in the early 1990s.

That being said, the Pocono Raceway is a little different than an airport when it comes to photography access. The track has requested that all folks that want to have Professional Photographer access please contact Kevin Heaney for credentialing.
