We recently wrote about a great deal on tickets to the famed Greenwood Lake Airshow (read that article HERE) in Northern Passaic County, NJ – not too far from many frum communities.

Seeing the results in person is always more gratifying, and we loved seeing the many Jewish families in person who enjoyed a spectacular show at super savings! – If you’re not on our email list – you’re missing out!

Our kids even got to see the Twins from France, who apparently, also enjoy some good kosher entertainment!

Firstly let me say that we were at an airshow at an air-force base near Lakewood last year, and with the huge crowds, lines to get in, parking nightmares, and them even closing down attractions due to overcrowding…

Let’s just say this was a WHOLE lot different.

Approximately a 40 min drive from Passaic, we arrived just before 2PM as our boys had school first. Parking was cinch, and Groupon in hand, we just marched right in (and saved a cool $128!)

This show was much more family oriented and intimate. Seated a short few hundred feet along the runway, this show definitely had a more intimate feel to it.

The acts were performed by one stunt pilot after another, with an announcer keeping things informative and entertaining.

One other cool thing was that there was no lag between acts… the new pilots were already up in the air and ready before the current pilot even landed his craft. Definitely kept things moving.

It was a great mix of new and old,

with some acts performed solo,

and others in tandem.

Another cool thing was seeing the world’s smallest ‘MicroJet’ – look at its size in relation to the tractor alongside the runway…

I think the highlight for us was the wingwalker, where this husband-wife pilot-wingwalker team flew, held on, walked and stood atop the plane in the air!

It gets even more extreme – In the next few pictures, that same wing-walker got up into a standing position atop the wing -MID-FLIGHT!

While tethered in with a safety line,

they performed dives,

vertical climbs,

complete loops over the top

and more!

built…

on…

trust!

It was really cool to get to meet the wing-walker in person, where she happily shmoozed with the kids and gave each one a free photograph autographed by her and her husband –

it was amazing how down to earth they were (hey, no pun intended!)

Other stunt-flying groups joined the fray,

making some pretty cool patterns

and formations in the sky

On the way back to the car, an off-road jeep exhibitor at the show let our kids climb up onto his vehicle for some photo ops.

All in all – It was a great day, and we’ cant wait for the next one!

So what’s for this weekend?

Try the Aviation Hall of Fame in Teterboro – They have open cockpit weekend this week (Sunday, June 18th)

While not as exciting as an airshow, you and your kids get to sit in the cockpits of many of their aircraft on display, and it is enjoyable, as well as makes for dome great pictures!

Great Frum Tip: The Aviation Hall of Fame is fairly inexpensive and also makes for a great Rainy Day Activity as much of it is indoors, or a 1/2 day Chol Hamoed Outing.

So where is it and how do you get there?
