Jets roar over Hudson River in aerial display

Posted: Updated:

People looking up at the sky near the Hudson River got quite an aerial show this morning.

Four teams of 24 jets roared down the river and circled over the Statue of Liberty. The flights then went back up the Hudson and passed over West Point Military Academy before landing back at Stewart International Airport.

The teams taking flight were the Royal Air Force Red Arrows, The Blue Angels, the Thunderbirds and F-35 Lightning II Demo Team.     

The aerial display was all part of the New York International Air Show, which is set for Saturday and Sunday in Newburgh.

News 12 got a 360-degree view of what it's like to fly with one of the show's premiere performers. Geico Skytypers pilot Tom Daly showed News 12 the ropes and rings Thursday before providing a bird's-eye view of what he'll do when he performs this weekend.

Gates open Saturday at 9 a.m.  Tickets for adults start at $32 per day, with tickets for kids ages 6 to 12 at $20. Children under 6 are free.
