The 177th Fighter Group invited Galloway Patriot To Private Viewing of Air Show Aircraft the day before the Atlantic City Air Show where we were able to get over 50 exclusive and rare photos of these amazing aircraft. We hope you enjoy all the great photos.

We were excited for the opportunity to see all the amazing planes up close. As most of you know, we are both veteran Marines and were most excited to see the Ospreys up close again.

We were also on hand to see Brigadier General Robert Bolton fly his final time. General Bolton is the Commander, New Jersey Air National Guard, which includes the 108th Wing at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst and the 177th Fighter Wing based at the Atlantic City International Airport, Egg Harbor Township. He has an amazing 6000 hours of flight time. The great photo below shows the General as he taxis after landing through arcs of water to honor him and his final flight.
