The six WWII-era aircraft will perform a dynamic 18-minute, low-level precision-flying demonstration in honor of the 75th Anniversary of the end of WWII. The GEICO Skytypers vintage airplanes trained the "greatest generation" of pilots for WWII. 

The New York International Air Show will adopt a drive-in format for this year to comply with the most recent New York state health department requirements. The event will take place at Orange County Airport, a venue that is ideally suited for spreading out vehicles enough to allow spectators to watch from beside them and have enough space to socially distance themselves from others.

"Airshow spectators and aviation enthusiasts will witness our 'warbirds' perform a dynamic demonstration designed by team members who served in the U.S. military," says Larry Arken, squadron commander and team flight lead.
