Harrier Features In Top Spot At Atlantic City Airshow

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

It goes up, it goes down, it doesn't even mess around! It's a Harrier aircraft – the only privately owned Harrieryou're likely to see– and it's going to fly over Atlantic City alongside a suite of vintage aircraft now that Congress has grounded all non-essential military flights. Still, even without the shock and awe of military fliers, the Atlantic City Airshow promises to be an event to remember.

A host of vintage aircraft and one modern fighter jet will take to the skies today in the first Atlantic City Airshow without a single military act.

Organizers searched farther than ever to find enough acts to round out a lineup that took a hit, along with the rest of the country's airshows, when federal budget cuts grounded nonessential military flying.

Greater Atlantic City Chamber President Joe Kelly has said that while the situation was challenging, organizers were determined to not cancel the 11th annual show and instead provide a new experience for spectators on Atlantic City's beaches and Boardwalk.
