Takes place at Stewart Airport July 1 and 2

The U.S. Navy Blue Angels will headline the 2017 New York Air Show at Stewart International Airport on Saturday, July 1, and Sunday, July 2.

The U.S. Air Force will commemorate its 70th birthday with its latest, most advanced aircraft, the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter, as well as provide a full-capabilities demonstration of the F-16 Viper.

The New York Air National Guard’s 105th Airlift Wing will demonstrate the massive C-17 Globe Master III and the West Point Parachute Team will jump with the U.S. flag in to start the show both days. The 75th anniversary of the Doolittle Raid on Japan will be marked with a performance by the World War II era B-25 Bomber “Panchito.”

Other aerial performers include the GEICO Skytypers; Mike Wiskus in the Lucas Oil Pitts; and aerobatic pilot David Windmiller.

The show runs from noon until 4 p.m. both days. Early arrival is recommended due to heavy traffic. Gates open at 9 a.m. and numerous aircraft can be viewed as part of the extensive ground displays.
