The New Jersey Division of Travel and Tourism has awarded the Greenwood Lake Air Show a Cooperative Marketing Grant of $13,050. The Cooperative Marketing Grant Program is a collaboration between the New Jersey Department of State, Division of Travel and Tourism and the New Jersey travel industry, whose goal is to promote New Jersey as a premier travel destination.

The air show has marketed throughout northern New Jersey and across the border into neighboring states. According to

“An event such as this brings families and aviation enthusiasts together for a day full of fun and history,” said Tim Wagner, air show event coordinator.

Attendance at the show has been steadily growing throughout the years, making it a highlight of the summer in the region, according to Wagner. With the expanding show comes additional traffic to West Milford and the surrounding areas promoting tourism to the region.

Along with other local events such as ALF, fireworks, a circus, and the boat races, West Milford has been able to grab the attention of more and more tourists.

“The support of the local community is vital to the continued success of the air show and all local events,” Wagner said.

Ninth air show plannedThe ninth annual air show will be spread over two days on June 10 and 11. Attendees will see some of the top aerobatic performers from across the nation, including Rob Holland, Bill Stein, and most recently, Matt Chapman. The three are part of a four-ship group called 4ce. In addition to their solo acts, they will be performing a formation routine.

“They are some of the most skilled aerobatic competitors around, sure to delight and thrill the audience,” stated Wagner.

In addition to the aerobatics, viewers will have the pleasure of watching historic aircraft take to the skies including the B-25 Briefing Time from the Mid Atlantic Air Museum. Kevin Russo of New Jersey will perform a fly-by demonstration in his T-6. On the ground, patrons may visit the many historical exhibits to learn more about the roles aviation played in World War II.

Tickets, schedules, and a full list of the performers can be found on www.GreenwoodLakeAirShow.com. Also, be sure to find the Greenwood Lake Air Show on Facebook.
