Atlantic City Air Show 2017

Search homes for sale at the Jersey ShoreAround 10:30am on Wednesday August 23rd, the air space above local beaches shuts down to any traffic not involved in the show.  The US Army Golden Knights kick off the day’s events with a streamer drop at 11:15am.  Then, guests of the Atlantic City Air Show 2017 will be treated to skywriters, skytypers, a flag jump, aircraft flybys, military demonstrations and so much more.  For the “piece de resistance”, the US Air Force Thunderbirds show off their magnificent power to close down the show.

Places to Watch the Atlantic City Air Show 2017

Since all the action takes place overhead, any local beach provides optimal viewing for the Atlantic City Air Show 2017.  Scout a spot on the Boardwalk if you’d like.  Or, visit Margaritaville, the Hard Rock Cafe, Casa Taco and Tequila, Harry’s Oyster Bar or any of the other fabulous Boardwalk restaurants for lunch.  Request outdoor seating and you’ll have a great place to watch the show above!

But there’s no waiting out on the water.  Spend the day on your boat and entertainment will follow.  Just keep an eye out for “no boat” zones.  Be safe.  Once the aerobatics start, tune your radio to WPG 104.1FM or 1450AM for a running commentary on the air show performers.

Atlantic City Air Show 2017 Tips

Let me leave you with a few tips before you take off for the Atlantic City Air Show 2017.  The weatherman predicts highs in the 80’s with possible thunderstorms later in the day.  Even with cloud cover, make sure you slather on the sunscreen.  Layer your clothing so you can take it off as it gets hotter and add back when it cools off.  Don’t forget your sunglasses.  For a closer look at the performers, bring your binoculars.  Charge up your digital cameras and smartphones.  You’ll want to capture all the incredible performances to share with others.  Pack plenty of snacks and water.

Officials warn that drones will not be allowed anywhere near the City’s beaches while the Atlantic City Air Show 2017 takes place.  Any drones caught in the vicinity will be confiscated.  Owners may face fines.  Let’s keep everyone safe while they enjoy this amazing show.
