Spectacular air show to return to Atlantic City
The skies above AC will be filled with military and civilian high-performance aircraft and helicopters from across the country in Aug. as the Atlantic City Air Show returns.
Organizers said that 500,000 people attended last year’s event on the beach in AC. In a statement, promoters said:
“Visitors flock to our destination for this iconic event every year, and they look forward to cheering as the planes dip and dive over the Atlantic Ocean. We couldn’t be more honored to power the Atlantic City Airshow this year and are excited to work alongside the Greater Atlantic City Chamber to put on a fantastic show.”
Flying in Atlantic City for the first time in five years is the U.S. Navy’s F/A-18 Super Hornet “Rhino” East Coast Demo Team, which consists of pilots, weapon systems officers (WSOs) and maintenance crew.
Michael Chait, president of the AC Chamber of Commerce said, “It’s incredible to have the Navy’s Rhino Demo Team fly in the A.C. Airshow, As one of only nine airshows that the ‘Rhinos’ will be in this year, we feel very honored to have them fly in Atlantic City’s.”
The U.S.A.F. Thunderbirds and the U.S. Army Parachute Team – aka the Golden Knights – will also take to the A.C. skies again, and more military and civilian acts will be announced at a later date.
The “A Salute to Those Who Serve” airshow will take place on Aug. 24, starting at 11 AM; there is no rain date.
