I love the sound of jet fighter planes overhead. My love for it is most likely linked to fond memories from my childhood growing up on military bases. My dad wasn't a pilot but many of my friends had family who flew. There is just something so cool about them flying overhead. If you have never had the experience of watching a group like the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, let me be the first to tell you they are beyond exciting.

The best place to catch their talent is at an air show and we are fortunate to have our own air show returning again this year to the Hudson Valley. The Orange County Airport in Montgomery will once again be the site for the New York Air Show where you can see not only the Thunder Birds but also our very own West Point Parachute Team among others.

Most of us are used to seeing concerts at the Orange County Fair Grounds outside on the track but did you know they have a great indoor space as well? I was just there for Scotty McCreery's Same Truck Tour so I thought I would snap a few pictures so you can check the place out.
