They will join the U.S. Navy Blue Angels in headlining the event that will also feature the Northeast debut of the U.S. Air Force F-35 Lightning II Demo Team.
The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows, are coming to North America for the first time in over a decade. They are one of the world’s premier aerobatic display teams, representing the speed, agility and precision of the Royal Air Force. They assist in recruiting to the Armed Forces, act as ambassadors for the United Kingdom at home and overseas and promote the best of British.
“What an honor to host the Red Arrows and the Royal Air Force,” said Bryan Lilley, Chairman of the New York International Air Show. “This is the third international jet team we’ve hosted in the five year history of the event, so we feel it’s time to brand the show with ‘International’ in its title.”
“The New York Air Show has been a tremendous success since we brought it back to Orange County in 2015. The addition of the Royal Air Force Red Arrows to an already impressive lineup is a testament to that. This will be the biggest New York Air Show ever and we are eager and excited to host this event with our partners, the Port Authority and B. Lilley Productions,” said Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus.
