    It was a great day in Atlantic City New Jersey, nothing but red, white, and blue. This is the America i remember growing up, supporting your military and country. There had to be at least 300k or more people who lined the beaches, boardwalk, hotels, and boats in the water.

    All the military services had promotion booths along with the thunderbirds, ATF, police, emergency units, local business, and the boy scouts walking about selling programs about. People were in line at every arm service booth talking, filling out papers, receiving gifts, taking pictures, and talking with the men and women in uniform.

    All the promotion booths had music playing, the air force had a car size model of a fighter jet, adults and kids were taking pictures. Of course the MARINE promotion booth had chin-bar with young adults standing in line stepping up to give their best shot.

    The reason I posted this video at the Marine forum is, I thought the MARINE stole the show, as you will see at the end of the video. After clicking the link wait for the movie to load because of the large size. When using full zoom trying to video jets doing 6-800 mph it can be challenging so be lenient. (laughing)

    The airshow - sponsored in large part by the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa - drew about half a million people, according to police estimates. They lined the Boardwalk, crammed the beaches, jockeyed for position in places such as the new Pier at Caesers. People who may not have come to Atlantic City in years came - and saw the improvements and attractions that have sprung up over the past few years.

    It's been a long standing demand from both the Thunderbirds and the Blue Angels that the Harrier demo is always done AFTER their show. In the past when the Harrier went first, lots of people left right after the Harrier, before the "main attraction" started their routine.
