Another Air Show Tomorrow and Monday

Notify NYC tells us that tomorrow, Sunday, September 1 and Monday, September 2 (Labor Day)

7 multicolored L-39 Jets and a blue and white Jet Provost will be conducting a flyover on the Hudson River in Manhattan on 9/1 from 10 AM to 6 PM and 9/2 from 10 AM to 3 PM for a photo shoot of the Statue of Liberty. The aircraft will fly at approximately 2,000 ft.

Unfortunately, the broad time frames don’t allow planning to view, but if you happen to see these brightly colored jets, you’ll know what they are and why they’re up there. As before, they should be easily visible from the Promenade. The photo (Wikimedia Commons) is of an L-39 Albatros of the Czech Air Force; the plane was designed and is built there.

    FWIW, my wife and I, and a friend, saw the formation of jets trailing colored smoke heading south over the Statue this evening at about 7:00; later than announced.
