Thunder Over the Boardwalk

ATLANTIC CITY - August 19, 2009

The air show has become one of the nation's premier aerial spectacles.

The 30 aerial displays included helicopter rescues, parachute teams, and precision flying.

The event brought thrills and excitement to the crowds watching from the beach, the boardwalk, and a flotilla offshore.

The finale was a demonstration by the Air Forces' Thunderbirds.

While the Thunderbirds' precise maneuvers exhibited pilot skill and the capabilities of high performance aircraft, to those watching on the ground, it was just plain "cool."

Last year's crowd was estimated to be 700,000. According to police, this year had an even bigger attendance.

The AC Air Show is sponsored by the Borgata.
