Air Force Week
During Air Force Week, New Yorkers and visitors to the City can meet the men and women who serve in the U.S. Air Force and learn more about what these servicemembers do. Many of the events and demonstrations occur at Pier 86 next to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, but there are also celebrations throughout the City, all of which are free and open to the public.
Highlights of the three-day celebration include a flyover of the Hudson River and the Intrepid Museum by the USAF Thunderbirds on Sunday, August 19 at 1pm; military working dog demonstrations at Pier 86 (next to the Intrepid Museum); a concert by the Blue Aces at Staten Island's Midland Beach; and appearances of the Air Force's X-1 and Vapor supercars.
