Bethpage Air Show
After a year’s absence, the Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach received a warm welcome back this weekend — with a near-record crowd Sunday.
The U.S. Navy’s aerobatic team landed Thursday morning at Republic Airport in Farmingdale.
WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman got a chance to fly with one of the world’s most experienced aerobatic pilots — and even took over the controls — as the tiny two-seater plane rolled and spiraled while barreling through the sky at up to 210 mph.
The Blue Angels flew to Long Island this week to officially announced their return to the annual Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach.
With the clouds and rain gone, the Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach State Park got off the ground Sunday.
The Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach, Long Island, has been canceled for Saturday due to the rainy, bone-chilling weather.
The Bethpage Air Show is taking place on both Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and the Blue Angels will kick off their performance at 2 p.m.
The air show is on Saturday and Sunday. Scheduled to perform are the Navy’s Blue Angels, an F-22 Raptor, the Army’s Golden Knights, and the Canadian Snowbirds.
