The show will also feature countless classic cars and trucks.

Helicopter rides will be offered both days of the show, as well as tethered hot air balloon rides. Entertainment will be provided by the Victory Belles singing trio.

Veterans wearing VFW or American Legion caps and active duty military personnel will be admitted free. Adult admission is $15 and children 5-12 and seniors 62 and older $10. Kids under 5 a free. Show cars will be admitted for $20 for one day or $30 for two, and includes admission for all occupants. All proceeds benefit the New Jersey Aviation Hall of Fame and Museum.

This is Flying's third time sponsoring the show since it moved to Caldwell Airport in Essex County.
