WEST MILFORD — Excitement is building as the sixth annual Greenwood Lake Air Show prepares to take flight from Friday, Aug. 15 through Sunday, Aug. 17, 2014. This year's air show promises to be the most thrilling show to date.
In the spotlight this year is the Indy Boys. Driver Paul Stender is the definition of an adrenaline junkie. With his jet powered creations, he has made international headlines and appeared on multiple television specials. His Jet Bus may be his most exciting creation yet, reaching speeds of up to 367 mph and spewing fire.
Appearing for the first time at the Greenwood Lake Air Show is the Lucas Oil Air Show Team. Mike Wiskus is the 2002 U.S. national champion and was a member of the 2004 U.S. Aerobatic Team. He has traveled the world performing in the same aircraft that he will be performing in at this show.
There will also be a demonstration of the FLS Microjet flown by Justin Lewis. The Microjet is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s smallest jet. At a weight of only 860 pounds and a folded wingspan of only four feet wide, it’s no wonder it holds that record. The Microjet is best known for its use in the classic James Bond film "Octopussy."
Returning this year are the Alabama Boys Comedy Team, flown by Greg Koontz. The performance will feature a truck-top landing in his Piper J3 Cub. In addition, Koontz will perform aerobatics in his Extreme Decathlon.
A very rare P51-C model Mustang, flown by the Commemorative Air Force (CAF), will perform fly-bys.
Rounding out the lineup are air show greats Gary Ward, Raiders Demo Team, Greg Connell, Jerry McCart, and Kevin Russo in his vintage SNJ warbird trainer.
There will be many displays and exhibits on the field, including many World War II veterans.
Each day from 12:30 until 4:30 p.m., aircraft will fill the skies and jet engines will frock the ground, from formation flying to thrilling stunts, at an airfield that has its own share of unique history.
Daily admission to the air show is $25 for adults, $15 for veterans and seniors (65 and older), and $10 for children (ages 4 to 12). Children under age 4 are admitted free of charge. Admission on Friday is at a discounted rate. Gates will be open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Parking is ample and food vendors will be on hand for your dining pleasure. There is also a car show on Saturday and Sunday and live music on the field as well.
Greenwood Lake Airport is located at 126 Airport Road in West Milford.
