Thunderbirds returning to Atlantic City Airshow

    The Thunder is back!

    The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds will once again perform at the Atlantic City Airshow, set for the skies above the city’s beaches and boardwalk on Wednesday, Aug. 23.

    Flying in the F-16C Fighting Falcon and F-16 twin-seat trainers, much of the Thunderbirds’ performances are know for dramatics, accuracy, and precision. It’s the third oldest air demonstration squadron in the world.

    Other performers at the free “Thunder Over the Boardwalk” will include the U. S. Army Golden Knights Parachute Team, the GEICO Skytypers, Jim Beasley Jr.’s P51D Mustang demonstration, and an U.S. Navy F18 Super Hornet.

    “This event has helped to drive tourism to our destination during the midweek and showcase Atlantic City’s great amenities to hundreds of thousands of visitors,” said Greater Atlantic City Chamber President Joe Kelly.
