Goodell signs contract extension
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has reportedly received the extension that he has been looking for from the league. Jones also criticized Goodell's leadership and his handling of the national anthem protests.
John Cowman, president of JLC AirShow Management, said the show could become an annual event at the airport. The six demonstration pilots fly F/A-18 Hornets in more than 30 shows at various locations throughout the US each year, where they still employ numerous same practices and techniques used in their aerial displays from their inaugural 1946 season.
"The New York Air Show has had a positive impact on Orange County since we brought it back in 2015", Neuhaus said. WOMB will mark JLC Airshows' third time hosting the Blue Angels inside of 13 months. "We always welcome effective partnerships, in this case with Horry County, the Myrtle Beach International Airport, JLC Airshow Management, and of course the many talented performers".
The dates for the New York Air Show at Stewart Airport for 2018 and 2019 have been set along with the headlining acts for both years.
Advance ticket and exhibitor information will be available mid December on the Wings over Myrtle Beach website.
