In observance of Memorial Day Weekend, American Airpower Museum (AAM) continues their historic participation in the Jones Beach Air Show, flying their fabled "Arsenal of Democracy" warbirds over Jones Beach on Saturday, May 29 and Sunday, May 30! AAM’s fleet of iconic and meticulously restored military aircraft will include a B-25 Mitchell Bomber, Douglas C-47 Skytrain troop transporter, Grumman TBM Avenger Torpedo Bomber, Curtiss P-40 Flying Tiger, P-51D Mustang Fighter, AT-6 Texan Warbird and AT28D5 Nomad Vietnam Era Fighter. AAM’s WWII aircraft will also have practice fly days Thursday, May 27 and Friday, May 28 in the a.m. and p.m.
If you can't make it to Jones Beach for the Air Show, get a glimpse of these awe-inspiring aircraft as they take off towards Jones Beach, and later as they return to Hangar 3 at Republic Airport on Saturday, May 29 and Sunday, May 30, or watch them practice in preparation for the show on Thursday May, 27 and Friday, May 28. You can park for FREE in AAM’s lot and along New Highway! Bring the family, hang out all day, and watch exciting warbirds in action each day!
