Now celebrating it's 13th year, the 2015 Atlantic City Airshow will return to the skies above the beautiful free beaches and Boardwalk of Atlantic City on Wednesday, September 2, 2015.
"Thunder over the Boardwalk is a great event and Atlantic City offers the perfect setting for an airshow," said Ted Ward, GEICO vice
president. "We are pleased to serve as the presenting sponsor, which gives us ample opportunities to connect with the fans as they enjoy an impressive display of airmanship."
The U.S. Navy Blue Angels will return to the airshow for the first time since 2006. During their aerobatic demonstration, the Blues fly six
F/A-18 Hornet aircraft, split into the Diamond Formation (Blue Angels 1 through 4) and the Lead and Opposing Solos (Blue Angels 5 and 6). Also recently announced is the addition of the international "Breitling Jet Team" from France. The Breitling Team is the world's largest
professional civilian flight team performing on jets. The Atlantic City Airshow is one of only a dozen appearances being made by the Breitling Jet Team in the U.S. this year.
"The Atlantic City Airshow continues to be one of Atlantic City's biggest summer tourist events," said CRDA Executive Director, John
Palmieri. "The ability to offer this high performance free airshow complements our other tourism activities to make for a well-rounded
destination that visitors are able to plan their vacations around," he added.
Also confirmed for the September 2, 2015 show are U. S. Army Golden Knights Parachute Team and the GEICO Skytypers.
Visitors will also want to check out the free practice day on Tuesday, September 1, 2015, traditionally a popular event in itself, when a
shortened flight schedule primes smaller audiences before the big day. The annual Atlantic City Salutes the Armed Forces Parade will kick off the fun-filled week on Monday August 31, beginning at 6:00 p.m. on the Atlantic City Boardwalk.
