Thunderbirds, Blue Angels to return to Stewart air show

06 December 2017

The Blue Angels will be returning to the Great Tennessee Air Show for the first time since a deadly crash claimed the life of a pilot.

Recently announced at the International Council of Air Shows Convention in Las Vegas, the Fort Lauderdale Air Show will host the Thunderbirds and Blue Angels at the upcoming 2018 and 2019 events.

"It was our collective goal to bring the top talent the air show industry has to offer, including a military jet demonstration team", JLC AirShow Management President John Cowman said on Monday. The New York Air Show is a wonderful community event, which celebrates the air power of the American military.

"The news of the Blue Angels participation sets our plans in motion to deliver exactly what we intended and has exceeded our expectations for the first annual event", Cowman said.

Neuhaus added: "The fact that the US military's two elite jet demonstration teams are returning to the New York Air Show is a testament to its success".

Both the Thunderbirds and the Blue Angels perform in-flight maneuvers that have been known to leave land-based crowds just-short of breathless, often flying in formations where the planes appear perilously close to one another. The Blue Angels have traveled throughout the world performing before millions of spectators.

"The New York Air Show has had a positive impact on Orange County since we brought it back in 2015", Neuhaus said. "This is another great attraction for tourists to enjoy in our area during the spring season". More information is available online at airshowny.com/ or follow the show on Facebook.
