Security regulations issued for Youngstown air show

Posted: Updated:
VIENNA TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Organizers of the upcoming Thunder Over the Valley air show at the Youngstown Air Reserve Station have issued regulations covering security issues for the event scheduled for May 17-18.

There will be no on site parking, so those attending will be shuttled to the base from two locations. (see below)

Security regulations will prevent any arrivals later than people taking shuttle busses that depart at 3 p.m. from the two parking locations.

To ensure security, the following items may not be brought onto the show grounds:

• Excessive storage bags such as briefcases, duffle bags, suitcases and large camera bags
• Illegal drugs
• Any item that could be used as a weapon, such as firearms, ammunition, knives, mace, etc.
• Fireworks
• Pets except guide/working dogs for disabled individuals
• Large lawn chairs
• Bicycles, scooters, skateboards, roller blades, and roller skates
• Wagons
• Coolers
• Cans and bottles
• Liquids, except water in a clear bottle and baby bottles.

Due to limited parking availability at the base and the anticipated large crowds, air show guests must park at designated off-station locations from where they will be shuttled to the site of the event.

The locations include:

Eastwood Field at the Eastwood Mall shopping complex, 111 Eastwood Mall Blvd, Niles

Delphi-Packard Electric Systems (Phantom Fireworks property) at North River Rd. and Larchmont, 165 N. River Rd. NW, Warren.

Youngstown Air Partners will provide shuttle service to the station aboard Community Bus Service buses. Although admission to the air show is free, CBS will collect $5 per seat (unlimited all-day round trip shuttle service) to help subsidize the cost of transporting guests to the station.

"During our last air show, Air Force funds covered the cost of busing. In the current fiscal climate, that is not possible," said Col. James Dignan, 910th Airlift Wing commander. "We are pleased our private sector community partners are able to transport our guests to the air show for a nominal but necessary fee."

The parking areas will open and bus pass sales begin at 8 a.m. on both show days. Shuttle service begins at 8:45 a.m. and the show gates open at 9 a.m. Once parked, show guests will purchase their shuttle ticket, board a bus and be transported to the air reserve station for the show. Bus passes may be purchased from CBS prior to the show, beginning May 12, at the Eastwood Mall.

The shuttles will be available to guests for the duration of the air show. Shuttles transporting guests to the air station will cease operations at 3 p.m. However, shuttles returning guests to parking areas will operate until the show grounds close at 7 p.m.

Air show guests can tune into several local radio stations that will broadcast real-time traffic and parking updates.
These stations include:

93.3 FM
95.9 FM
98.9 FM
106.1 FM,
570 AM
1390 AM.

Additional stations may be added prior to the air show.

More than 50,000 people are expected to attend the show, which will be free to the public.

    TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Residents of a small Canadian island are being warned not to drink their well water because of potentially toxic algae in Lake Erie. The blue-green algae blooms causing the warning are the same stuff that contaminated the drinking water of about 400,000 people in the Toledo area earlier this month. Health officials say people who live on Canada's Pelee Island should stop bathing and cooking with the water from their private wells that draw Lake Erie. The Windsor-Essex Cou...More >>
