ATLANTIC CITY – Atlantic City Airshow, Thunder Over the Boardwalk, the resort’s signature summer event, will include demonstrations by the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, parachute flag jump by the U.S. Army Golden Knights and world-class aerobatics teams over the beach and Boardwalk Wednesday, Aug. 13.
Unlike last year, the 12th annual event will include military demonstrations by the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Marine Corps. Popular civilian acts are also returning.
The Atlantic City Airshow is the largest one-day, midweek, over-the-ocean air show in the country, and is a community partnership between the Greater Atlantic City Chamber, the City of Atlantic City, the 177th Fighter Wing of the New Jersey Air National Guard, South Jersey Transportation Authority, FAA William J. Hughes Tech Center, the Atlantic City International Airport, David Schultz Airshows, LLC, the Atlantic City Alliance, the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority and many others.
Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa is the host hotel and Atlantic City International Airport (ACY) is the host airport for the Atlantic City Airshow.
Most of the show performers take off and land via ACY, although the Atlantic City Airshow takes place over the beach and Boardwalk in Atlantic City.
Show day is Wednesday, Aug. 13 from noon to 4 p.m. Visitors might also want to check out the free practice day on Tuesday, Aug. 12 from noon to 3 p.m. Traditionally a popular event, it features a shortened flight schedule and primes smaller audiences before the big day.
