ATLANTIC CITY — Thousands packed the beaches in and around Atlantic City Wednesday for the annual “Thunder Over the Boardwalk” airshow featuring the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels.
The airshow got underway with foggy skies that soon parted to reveal demonstrations by the Geico Skytypers, U.S. Coast Guard Search and Rescue along with several other military and civilian aerobatic acts.
In Atlantic City, prime viewing areas were claimed early along the beach and boardwalk. For those spectators that didn’t want to fight the 90-degree temperature, the Playground pier mall jutting out from the boardwalk over the ocean offered an air conditioned view of the aerial performances.
The event concluded with the U.S. Navy Blue Angels performing in the show for the first time since 2006.
