It’s official, The 19th Annual MEET AC Atlantic City Airshow has achieved an estimated record crowd of 550,000 spectators.

Michael Chait, President of The Greater Atlantic City Chamber of Commerce provided this number.

The crowd size is determined by a collaboration of the Atlantic City fire department, the Atlantic City Police Department, along with various Airshow experts that are on hand.

The previous record was an estimated 540,000 spectators.

It’s been a glorious day, with spectacular civilian and military performers.

The United States Air Force Thunderbirds are performing as we file this report and they have not disappointed. They have been spectacular in today’s airshow.

Here is some of the early action. First up, the elite, the incomparable United States Army Golden Knights.
