Atlantic City Airshow

I haven't seen an airshow in last 5 years however I'm a huge fan of airplanes and anything that moves fast. Unfortunately AC airshow only happens on the weekdays and this year its Friday the 17th.

US Air force Thunderbird will be performing and many other Aircraft from World War II to modern day F-16s and F-15s.

I can post an exact meet up location as we get closer. If you guys want to car pool together I'm gone be driving from Philly to AC.

    I stand corrected, I just checked on wikipeadia and and their estimate is a million people..... WOW

    Once you are past philly, there will not be too much traffic. I think the "million people" is not quite correct. There will be many people. However, there are places where you can park in AC for around $10.00. So if you come early, like around 8:30 am arrival, you will not have much trouble parking. For four adults, it makes sense to drive down. But then you may prefer the train.... it is up to you.

    We live in Newtown, Bucks county, PA ... very close to Trenton. I think the best option is going to be for us to drive to Cherry Hill train station ... free parking and then take the NJTransit over to AC. This way we can avoid some of the center city Philly traffic and parking $$ ... as well as the inevitable traffic trying to get into AC

    I will be joining with several other family members. All in all, we'll be 4 adults and 1 child. Is it really a million people going??? Was thinking about driving ... but with that type of a crowd, am now leaning towards Kim's train suggestion. Also, are you all planning to watch from the beach?

    So far, it is only me and perhaps Nilam that are coming down. The rest of you, please practice some courtesy and remove your RSVPs. Many a group has failed as a result of lack of courtesy.

    • Swapnil S.

      Agreed and I'm gone try to get out as early as i can to make it out their but not guaranteeing yet.

    Kim, from what it looks like, after seeing where your building is, that we can see the airshow fairly easily from there since the aircraft will be higher in the air. we do not need to be at beach level. Or are there other building obstructing the view. That I would not know. In any case, thank you for the offer and it will provide a good shelter from the heat.

    @ Ashok - I've not decided yet. I will let you know Thursday evening.

    Oh and I sent an email to Kena and did not get a reply so they may still be thinking of coming.

    Kim, To me it looks like, I am the only one that is coming so far since Swapnil has opted out and Nilam thinks the drive is too much. Is it still ok to stop by your place? Where do I go when I get to the resort?

    August 14, 2012

  • Kim G.

    We are at flagship resort (you can google). There is a partial view to beach from balcony, but we can walk (5 to 10 min walk). There is street parking but best thing to come to AC that day is by train as 1 million people are expected. Train leaves 30th street and stops in cherry hill, NJ. It is NJ transit train, fare about 6$. Once in AC, there is free shuttle from train to beach. I highly recommend all to check out train schedule. More than welcome to meet our building. As it may get hot, our building can be used to rest/take breaks. Any one want to text me, it is[masked]-1163. Email: gill [masked].

    I am still waiting to hear from Kim. I also know that there is another group that is going and I am inclining towards joining in with that group. That is also a meetup group named NE Philly Singles group.
    Kena, you are most welcome to come to my house, since my house is right on the way, 2 mins from the highway. Then we can car pool from there.

    Hey guys, Unfortunately I'm not gone be able to attend the airshow anymore. Just found out late yesterday afternoon that I have to attend a meeting at work from 11 till 1pm smack down in the middle of the airshow. Would anyone else like to take the lead and organize this event? Sorry :( was really excited to meet you all.

    Kim, where is your building? Are there places to park near your building? Also can you see the beach from your building?

    August 13, 2012

  • Nilam

    I'm coming from KOP & would like to meet in the city to carpool.
    I was planning to come to the city by train/bus , but is there free parking by where you live for me to park my car? If so, then I have a beach umbrella & 2 folding beach chairs I could bring.
    It's a good idea to exchange cell #'s .
    Please email it to [masked] & I'll reply in return.

    Please let me know who wants to go there early and who wished to car pool. I live near Walt Whitman Bridge. So anyone coming from Philly, or cherry hill etc are close by.... we can car pool.... if you like. we need to plan ahead... Also, I plan on bringing a cooler and picnic food and snacks and plenty of water to drink. I will bring a chair. If we go late, there will be almost no room for us on the beach since it gets fairly crowded. We need to go as early as possible. Then, if we plan ahead and use cell phones, we can find each other. There is another meetup group also going... Maybe we can coordinate with that group. Your thoughts?

    Great find Ashok, I think i'm gone park near the boardwalk Hall. Their is a cheap outdoor parking lot on Atlantic Ave. Directly behind Boardwalk Hall for $10 (at least that was the price few months back). I plan to be at the beach by 11:00 for 11:15 F-16s flybys.
