In the summer skies of August, the wailings of plane engines arc overhead, drawing eyes upward where skilled pilots display aerial acrobatics. The Greenwood Lake Airshow offers more than T-6 formation flights and close passes of Yak 52Ws, though. Peppered across the airport grounds, vintage cars and hot rods hearken back to the days of motor-city dominance and roller-skating politicians. World War II reenactment troupes, including the Easy Company 506th, show off authentic field tents filled with replica gear and faithfully attired soldiers.
The festivities of land and sky combine, turning heads as Jane Wicker treats her biplane like a jungle gym, hanging by her legs from its wings and standing upright as it flips, before pulling them back down to a parked C-47. Then pilots of the six-member Northeast Raiders lure gazes back to the sky as they perform head-on passes and formation drills, such as flying in the shape of the Constitution. Meanwhile, mouths already agape at the aeronautic displays can be filled with American concessions such as hot dogs, burgers, and cheesesteaks.
