The Atlantic City Air Show Takes Off This Wednesday
Look for us on the boardwalk this Wednesday for the 11th annual Atlantic City Airshow. Last years's show drew a record of 908,000 spectators. This year's show will undergo some changes from previous shows.The show is now set for the end of June instead of the end of August. The air show now returns to mid-week instead of Friday. The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds will not be performing or the first time in a decade and budget cuts will ground nonessential military flying for the first time in a decade.
With all these changes officials still expect huge crowds on the boards in Atlantic City. Showtime is set for this Wednesday at noon.
