More afterburner power coming in the form of the US Navy's F/A-18F Super Hornet Demo Team. :D

Michael Wiskus and his Lucas Oil Pitts S-1-11B confirmed.
Mike Wiskus will return in the Lucas Oil Pitts and make your hear spin at the 2020 New York International Air Show! Who thinks it's good we don't have any boats to buzz at NY Stewart Int'l Airport? 🤣

Air Show Stay Safe and Separate Initiatives
The New York International Air Show is implementing a series of “Stay safe and separate initiatives” to ensure the safety of guests and spectators at this year’s event. The following initiatives extend across the entire event site:



The quantity of total daily admission tickets will be reduced 50% from the 2019 event
Tickets must be purchased online or by phone, they will not be sold on-site at the event.
Line mitigation at venue entrances by adding bagless guest express lanes and allowing early entry
Contactless entry and ticket scanning
Providing for 6 feet of separation between groups waiting to check in
The flight performances will start one hour later a 1:00 pm to provide more time for entry and check in
Preferred Seating will be reserved seating by group with large aisles between group sections and rows
Portable restrooms will be spaced out and frequently sanitized
Increased quantity of hand-washing and sanitizing stations
Masks and hand sanitizer will be available for purchase at all event merchandise stands
This year’s show will be a cashless event site
Payments for food, beverage and merchandise will be by credit card or air show gift card only
Event site will be designed so guests can walk from parking to the gate without having to ride a bus
A cash exchange booth will be set up to be able to purchase air show gift cards for issues like credit card declines or exhausted balances on pre-paid debit cards. There will be a 10% convenience fee added to all cash gift card purchases. Gift cards can be used like a credit card for purchases anywhere inside the event site.





Additional Stay Safe and Separate Initiatives in the Flight Line Club VIP will include:



All seating outside the tents will be reserved seating by group with large aisles between group sections and rows
Flight Line Club seating will be arranged by group size (i.e. sections of 2, 3 and 4 seats)
Catered lunch service will be called by sections to mitigate lines
Under tent tables will be for eating by section only until 2:00p
Table coverings will be sanitized between use and replaced each day
After 2:00p tables will be available for guests to take short breaks in the shade
Masks and hand sanitizer will be provided to all guests
Contactless VIP check in with individually packaged easy-on wristbands guests can put on themselves


Staying safe and separate is a team effort! Your assistance helps keep you and the spectators around you safe. Here are the things you can do to help stay safe and separate at the New York Air Show:



Purchase your tickets and parking in advance, no on-site purchase will be available
Leave bags at home or in your vehicle to avoid bag checks at the show entrance
Bring a credit card, debit card or pre-paid debit card to pay for food, beverages and merchandise
Wash and sanitize your hands frequently
Wear a mask when in close proximity to other people
Maintain a distance of 6 feet or more between your party and others
Do not attend the show if you or a family member has been or is feeling sick
Stay hydrated and drink plenty of fluids during the show
Minimize touching surfaces and your face

Seems like both the general admissions for Saturday and Sunday are sold out...
Though the more expensive seating for preferential, VIP, and photo pit seems to be still avialiable.

I'll be very surprised if this show actually happens after the Governor of New York canceled the annual NY State Fair this week.
Plus NASCAR had to move their race from Watkins Glen, NY to Daytona in August also since they're unable to meet New York's
quarantine requirements for out-of-state visitors, and with the Thunderbirds being based in Nevada, that state is on New York's
14 day quarantine list too unfortunately. The F-22 and F-18 Super Hornet Demo teams should be OK since they're both based in
Virginia, cause that state isn't on NY's 14 day quarantine list right now. Hopefully the show will post an update soon about all
these Covid-19 concerns with the NY Governor's office.
