AIR SHOW TIPS
Remember The Air Show covers a lot of ground, be prepared for lots of walking.

Safety and Security First
  • NO COOLERS! Anybody with a cooler will be turned back at the gate.
  • All air show visitors and their bags are subject to search while at McGuire.
  • There is a no smoking rule on the flight line which is strictly enforced.
  • Observe all signs, including the ones that say "do not touch" - they're there for a reason.
  • Do not touch any aircraft unless you're invited to do so by the aircrew and never climb on the planes.
  • Some aircraft on display are open for tours. Don't let this opportunity to explore these airplanes pass you by.
  • Trip hazards are everywhere. Watch for tent ropes and aircraft tie-down chains. They appear out of nowhere. Also, watch for other people. The flight line gets crowded.
  • Do not attempt to cross the crowd fencing - this is a show stopper!
  • Remember that trash can be sucked up into the aircraft engines, damaging the aircraft and endangering the pilot's life. Please keep the flight line litter-free by using the trash receptacles provided for your convenience.
  • No bicycles, skates - including inline skates - or skateboards. The flight line gets too crowded for people on wheels to be maneuvering through the masses.
  • Pets are not permitted on the flight line. Service animals being used for special needs are permitted on the flight line.
First Aid
  • Drink plenty of fluids, especially if the day is a sunny, warm, spring day.
  • Apply sunscreen often, especially to small children. Temperatures on the flight line typically are higher than normal. Bring a hat - most people forget about the sun beating down on the tops of their heads.
  • Take time out to rest during the day. With the excitement, you could become fatigued.
  • A first aid tent will be set up at a yet to be determined location.
Lost and Found
  • A lost and found/information booth will be set at a yet to be determined location to report lost children. Announcements will be made over the public address system. Bring found items or report lost items to the lost and found/information tent.
Information on the Air Show is found here:

Dave, hope to see you there. Normally....not many people can follow the ACR, but my rear view mirror was full of Copper last year! :D Even on the secret back road.

For those of you who missed it last year, this one will be even better. Check it out. Only an F18 SuperHornet last year.

Add in the F15 DEMONSTRATION as well.

F15 Video: (For those of you who know, McGuire is one of the few air bases on the East coast that has a large airspace dedicated to it, therefore the demonstrations are really great.)

NOT TO BE MISSED:usa::usa:

YouTube - F15 AIRSHOW FLY-BY OVER THE CROWD. VERY LOW AND LOUD!!!!!

And more stuff to come.......

John:

Thank you for all the work you did in setting up the gathering at the McGuire Air Force base Air Show. Great Show good friends. With your short cuts in and out of the base made it a breeze around the traffic.
Enjoyed the roar of those F-16 Vipers doing their high speed passes over the crowds!
Loved that ****** horse power!

Hope to do it again next year.

Richie
