Greenwood Lake Airshow
In the summer skies of August, the thunder of plane engines arcing overhead draws eyes to skilled pilots performing aerial acrobatics. The annual Greenwood Lake Airshow stages more than T-6 formation flights and close passes of Yak-52Ws, though. Peppered across the airport grounds, vintage cars and hotrods hark back to the days of motor-city dominance and roller-skating presidents. World War II reenactment troupes, meanwhile, joined by real-life Tuskegee Airmen, show off authentic field tents filled with replica gear and faithfully attired soldiers.
The festivities of land and sky combine, enticing eyes up as Jane Wicker treats her biplane like a jungle gym, hanging from its wings and standing upright as it flips, before pulling them back down to a parked C-47. Also on display, the FLS Microjet—whose predecessor starred in Octopussy as one of Bond’s love interests—shows that big power can come in a small package. Throughout the event, mouths already agape at the aeronautic displays can close around concessions such as hot dogs, burgers, and cheesesteaks.
