Again highlighting the summer with some of the best aviators on the planet, the Atlantic City Air Show moves from midweek to Friday for its 10th anniversary.
Q Parking tips: For a $20 fee, show goers can park-and-ride to and from the Boardwalk from two locations — the SJTA Intercept lot on the A.C. Expressway (shuttles will run 9am-5pm continuously the day of the show) or Bader Field on the Black Horse Pike (6:30am-6:30pm the day of the show). Handicapped parking will be available on Albany and Montpelier avenues, which has an accessible ramp for entrance onto the Boardwalk. The new Wave parking garage at Fairmount Avenue between Christopher Columbus Boulevard and Mississippi Avenue has six levels and 1,180 parking spaces.
Other details: Those wishing to view the Air Show from the ocean are welcome to do so, but should be aware that there will be a “no boat zone” restricting boats from approaching too close to the beaches. A handicap viewing area will be available at the pavilion at Montpelier Avenue and the Boardwalk. Space is limited and restricted for those in wheelchairs who cannot access the beach. Handicapped parking will be available on Albany Avenue, which has an accessible ramp for entrance onto the Boardwalk. The show will be broadcast live on WOND 1400 AM.
Practice runs will be taking place most of the day Thursday, Aug. 16.

Ocean City presents the 26th annual Ocean City Airport Festival on Saturday, Sept. 17, and then follows on Sunday, Sept. 18, with an Aerobatic Air Show off the Boardwalk.
This year’s Atlantic City “Thunder Over the Boardwalk” Air Show will tie into the series with seven outstanding bands performing Monday through Wednesday, Aug. 15-17, including about six hours of music beyond when the air show ends (around 3:30pm) Wednesday.
In its ninth year, The Atlantic City Thunder Over the Boardwalk Air Show will fill the city’s skylines with jets, stunt planes and parachuters on Wednesday, Aug. 17, all capped off by a performance from the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds precision flying team, which has become the air show’s steady headliner each year.
All you need to know about this year's air show, including parking information, post-concert info and the schedule for the big Aug. 25 air show.
The inclusion of the Brazilian flight team will also garner international attention to the Atlantic City Air Show and dignitaries and embassy officials from Brazil are planning to attend this year's event in Atlantic City.
The 2nd Annual Atlantic City Air Show, an event that could bring the biggest crowd Atlantic City has ever had, will be held on Wednesday, August 18, from 10am-4:30pm, on Atlantic City's beachfront. The focal point of the show will be at Florida Avenue and the Boardwalk, in front of the Peter Max mural. The feature of the show will be the U.S Air Force Thunderbirds, who will be the closing act, flying around 2:30pm. It is an all-military air show with a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter showing how they pick up someone in the ocean who is in distress. The variety of the aircraft and the skill of their pilots and crews is something to behold. Last year's show drew nearly 250,000 and with word of the show's quality spreading throughout New Jersey and surrounding states, the show is expected to bring close to a half-million spectators to Atlantic City. The show may be seen from Brigantine to Ocean City. The main action will be in front of the Boardwalk Hall. With the wide beach that has just been installed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, there is ample room to hold one million people on our beaches. The Atlantic...
Would you believe that the Third Annual Atlantic City Air Show will be held in just seven weeks? A year has passed by too quickly. This year's show will be held on Wednesday, August 31 from 11am-3pm. In just two years the Atlantic City Air Show has become the second-largest air show on the East Coast, surpassed only by the Ft. Lauderdale Air Show, which draws more than a million people over its two days. The AC show drew a record 400,000 people last year and may surpass that number next month. For those who think there's no reason to go this year because they saw it all last year, I am happy to inform you that 50 percent of the Atlantic City Air Show 2005 will be new to former viewers. Have you ever seen a stealth bomber? I did. One morning while walking on the Boardwalk, at Florida Avenue, I looked up in the sky and over Boardwalk Hall flew this gigantic airplane in the shape of a bat. I had a scary feeling before realizing what it was; then I was thrilled to have had the privilege of seeing it. Its altitude was quite low and gave me the opportunity...
THE SECOND ANNUAL Atlantic City Air show will be held on Wednesday, August 18 at 11am. The first Atlantic City Air Show, held in August 2003, was a resounding success. It was the second-largest military air show in the United States. It drew upwards of 200,000 people and it was a financial success. It is anticipated that this year's show will draw close to a half a million spectators. As sponsors of the event, the Atlantic City Regional Chamber of Commerce (ACRCOC) is looking for ways to raise the necessary funds to make this show bigger and better than last year's. They are currently seeking a name sponsor to step forward and put their corporate logo on the air show. It is anticipated that all of the Atlantic City casino companies will participate with contributions. Thanks to the fact that the beach is now 200 ft. wide, the ACRCOC is putting into effect a plan that will encourage many of the area's businesses to become a part of the sponsorship of the air show. There are two plans being proposed to potential sponsors. The spots are in a select area in front of or adjacent to the center of the air show's...
Okay. You and your family came to see the fabulous Thunder Over the Boardwalk Atlantic City Air Show. Now as the show finishes, you are wondering, “What should we do next?
Atlantic City has hosted Offshore Power Boat racing before with major events in 1988 and 1989 back when the Golden Nugget was the Trump Castle. Dave Patnaude, the director of the New Jersey Offshore Powerboat Racing Association and the president of the New Jersey Performance Powerboat Club has been working hard to bring the boats, some of which have reached speeds of 200mph, back to town. Now he has succeeded.
