National Park Service 

National Park Service employees and visitors had their eyes on the skies earlier today. The Blue Angels, Royal Air Force Red Arrows, US Air Force Thunderbirds and F-35A Lightning II Demo teams performed a joint flyover past the Statue of Liberty.

[Image Descriptions: Two photos of the Statue of Liberty with military jets flying in "V-shaped" formation above the iconic sculpture. Behind the jets, trails of red, white and blue colored smoke streak the sky.]

The Borglum Effect

Numerous modifications were made to Bartholdi's Statue of Liberty's flame in an effort to have the sculpture serve as a beacon in the harbor. The textured glass panels installed in 1916 were the idea of Gutzon Borglum who years later completed Mount Rushmore. Although the illumination from the flame was an improvement, the design enabled moisture into the sculpture, compromising iron supports inside. The original flame was removed in 1984. You may visit the flame inside the Statue of Liberty Museum. Come SEE the light: www.nps.gov/stli

An Air Worthy Event - The Royal Air Force Red Arrows from the United Kingdom will join the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and F-35 Lightning II Demo Team in a historic 3 team flight down the Hudson River and over the Statue of Liberty on August 22, 2019 at approximately 9:30 am.

The Hudson Flight will approach from the North side of the city over the river in a procession of four team formations. The Blue Angels will lead in 6 aircraft delta formation, followed by the Red Arrows in their signature big battle 9 aircraft wide formation. Two F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighters will trail the Red Arrows followed by the Thunderbirds in their delta formation.

The Hudson Flight will fly south to New York Harbor where the formations will all make a sweeping right turn and the proceed back up the river for a second pass. They will make a pass over the United States Military Academy at West Point prior to landing at New York Stewart International Airport in Orange County, New York.

The Royal Air Force Red Arrows and F-35 Lightning II Demo Team will perform at the New York International Air Show on August 24-25

Did you see the RAF fly over the Statue of Liberty this morning? These are great photos of the event!What a day for the RAF Red Arrows photographers currently capturing the famous jets on their #RedArrowsTour.

Imagine being in the air today, hearing the usual call signs, Red 1, 4, 7, Dojo and Loco, wait Dojo and Loco?... That’s right, today was anything but usual with the Reds flying over New York City alongside the F-22 Raptor Demo Team (Loco) and the U.S. Air Force F-35A Lightning II Demonstration Team (Dojo).

Along with showering the great city with Red, White and Blue smoke, the nine red jets went over the The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc. wowing New Yorkers.

Lady Liberty has withstood all kinds of weather during her 132 years overlooking New York Harbor. Did you know that 50 mph winds cause the Statue to sway up to 3 inches and her torch up to 6 inches? ...

Our database of nearly 65 million ship passenger records from 1820 through 1957—where information about each passenger was written down and was used to examine immigrants upon arrival in the United States—might contain the immigration arrival of your ancestors! To prepare for a successful search, gather as much information as you can, such as: the passenger's first and last names; approximate year of arrival; ethnicity (which may include race, nationality, and religion); approximate age on arrival; ship of travel; port of departure; and whether the passenger traveled with other family members. You can search for your relatives in these immigration records while visiting the American Family Immigration History Center® at Ellis Island or online bit.ly/2SEgNJ6. #TipTuesday ...
