30 May 2019 | 12:27

Running June 1-2, the Greenwood Lake Air Show at Greenwood Lake Airport, show organizers say this year’s event will be action packed with more performances than ever.
Some of the best national performers are coming to West Milford to display their daredevil skills.
Appearing for the first time is Nathan Hammond, known as “Ghost Writer.”
After dark, Ghost Writer will illuminate the night sky with over 200 pounds of pyro and LED lights, in “a graceful ballet” among the stars.
Also appearing for the first time is Tom Larkin in his Sub Sonex Jet.
The performance includes a jet doing a full aerobatic routine in a small confined space.
The original Batcopter from the T.V. series Batman will be on display, as well as the famous Batmobile and Batcyle with a rare appearance of Batman, organizers said.
The Aeroshell Aerobatic Team is just one astounding highlight of the weekend.
They are one of the most sought after civilian acts in the industry.

A returning favorite includes Gary Ward in the MX-2.
Gary makes full use of the power and agility of the MX2 to perform many maneuvers that an “airplane just isn’t supposed to do.”
Jason Flood will also be returning with his high energy precision aerobatics.
Jerry McCart in his Jet Truck the ‘Home Wrecker’ will take to the sky as three afterburners light up the runway as Jerry races past the crowd.
Over 36,000 horsepower is produced from the 18,000 pounds of thrust, according to organizers.
The Twin Tigers Team is returning to the show where they will perform a tight aerobatic formation with a race through smoke rings, and later the “Come Alive” production Saturday night.
Historical features from World War II such as the P-40 Warhawk, Corsair, Douglas C-47 Skytrain, TBM-3 Avenger and the Japanese Kate torpedo bomber will be on display and take to the sky for both days.
Attendees can visit the Army Air Forces Historical Association display for an interactive, living history lesson on the aircraft and the valiant fliers who took them to war.
