Atlantic City Beachgoers Treated To Pre-Airshow Practice

Posted: Jun. 27th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

What could be better than a day at the beach in Atlantic City? Why, a free Airshow in the form of rehearsals for the upcoming Atlantic City performance due to kick off shortly. Locals are used to the display, but tourists looking for a way to improve their beach day were in for a bit of a treat.

Beachgoers were treated Tuesday to a preview of the airshow slated for today as pilots practiced their aerial stunts.

Hundreds lined the beach looking up as the planes flew by, down from last year’s practice, said a police officer on duty.

Last year practice day was a little busier,” said Derek Leyman, of the State Police.

Jim Record, a pilot with the Geico Skytypers, said although the military planes aren’t here this year, and the crowds will miss them, his act involving five planes is “military-type.” Most pilots are former military and practice with the same discipline, he said.
