4/6/14 – Media Information, VIP Chalet, Silent Drill Team

by Kenneth P.

Hello everyone!

Not too much has changed since  last week but I decided I’d give a quick little update.

AirShow_FinalLogo_2014-2

Media Information

I updated the media information section of the website with performer media kits, press releases, multimedia ect. You can check this out by clicking on the “Media Information” tab or clicking here.

I will be tweaking the website and getting all of the information up in the coming weeks so the site is ready for when airshow rolls around. I honestly can’t believe it is April already!

VIP Chalet

Airshow organizers will once again offer VIP ticket packages for prime viewing of the airshow. For more information click here or email Morgan.West@parks.ny.gov

The Jones Beach VIP Chalet was created in 2004 because of the overwhelming demand for a VIP area.  Local residents and businesses wanted a place to host their family, friends, and clients in a VIP setting while watching the Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach. We’ve created just that environment.

Tickets to the Jones Beach VIP Chalet allow our guests to view this spectacular Air Show from a private beachfront area set up specifically for our VIP ticket holders. Tickets also entitle our guests to enjoy a fully catered Continental Breakfast, Hot and Cold Buffet Lunch, Beverage service that includes a beer and wine bar at no additional fee, 1 VIP Parking Pass per order, and use of upgraded Private Restroom facilities located behind the Chalet for VIP guests only. The Jones Beach VIP Chalet is centrally located and provides unrestricted flight viewing for all guests.

USMC Silent Drill Team

In the last update I mentioned that the USMC Silent Drill Team would be performing at the airshow. Unfortunately I misread the source article and this is not the case. I am truly sorry for this misinformation.

USMC Silent Drill Team

1179295

Staff Sgt. Oscar L Olive IV / Business Insider

The USMC Silent Drill Team will be performing in conjunction with the Blue Angels.

 Composed of a 24-man rifle platoon, the Silent Drill Platoon performs at various venues across the country, and represents the Marine Corps abroad. In their shows, they move with incredible precision — marching, moving into different formations, and tossing rifles — without the use of any commands.

You can learn more about them here.

Notice to Mariners

IMG_4341e

Every year I see a fleet of recreational boaters heading to the airshow to be a part of the Memorial Day weekend festivities. Because of the massive amount of people that attend the show at Jones Beach the U.S. Coast Guard is issuing a temporary deviation of draw bridge operations. While this  will most likely not affect most recreational boaters I posted this here so you can plan ahead.

DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY

Coast Guard

33 CFR Part 117

[USCG-2013-1055]

Drawbridge Operation Regulations; Long Island, New York Inland 
Waterway From East Rockaway Inlet to Shinnecock Canal, Hempstead, NY

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Notice of temporary deviation from regulations.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Commander, First Coast Guard District, has issued a 
temporary deviation from the regulation governing the operation of the 
Wantagh State Parkway Bridge across the Sloop Channel, mile 15.4, at 
Jones Beach, New York. The deviation is necessary to facilitate public 
safety during the annual Jones Beach Air Show over Memorial Day 
weekend. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed 
position for an hour and a half on Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

DATES: This deviation is effective from 2:30 p.m. on May 24, 2014 
through 4 p.m. on May 25, 2014.

Airshow Updates Start Now!

by Kenneth P.

Hello everyone!

After a 8 month absence I am back again for year four of digging up airshow news. Anyway lets just jump into this…

If you don’t know already the Bethpage Federal Credit Union and the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation announced they will be hosting the 11th annual Airshow at Jones Beach. The headlining act will be the USN Blue Angels!

This is very good news for all of us considering last year’s fiasco with the sequester. The last time the Blue Angels came there were over 400,000 spectators.

In addition to the USN Blue Angels, the USMC will be performing their V-22 Osprey demonstration!

Here is the current list:

Military:

U.S. Army Golden Knights 
USMC V-22 Osprey

Civilian:

GEICO Skytypers
Sean D. Tucker – Aviation Specialties: Oracle Challenger III
Carl Skinner T-28 Trojan

Rob Reider will also be back as the airshow announcer and Airboss Wayne Boggs will be taking care of everything in the skies.

That is all for now! I am completing updates to the website for the 2014 airshow so stay tuned!
