There's an epic air show coming to New York City this Thursday, August 22nd. The Royal Air Force Red Arrows from the United Kingdom will join the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and F-35 Lightning II Demo Team in a historic 3 team flight. The jets are scheduled to fly south down the Hudson River and then over the Statue of Liberty at approximately 9:30 am. After the jets fly south over the Statue of Liberty, they will return north and make a pass over the United States Military Academy at West Point, prior to landing back at New York Stewart International Airport. Spectators in the city can get good views of the air show from Battery Park in Lower Manhattan.
