13th Annual Bethpage Airshow

The US Navy’s Blue Angels along with other world-class military and civilian performers took off from Jones Beach at the 13th Annual Bethpage Airshow to kick off Memorial Day Weekend.

They showed off their high flying stunts and maneuvers in the skies over Long Island.

Organizers say the event celebrates the start of summer, and honors members of the military and their families.

The Bethpage Air Show is an annual American air show held each May on Memorial Day weekend. It is staged in the airspace above and off the coast of the Jones Beach State Park in Wantagh, New York, located on Long Island.

The air show is typically headlined by either the United States Navy Blue Angels or United States Air Force Thunderbirds.

Due to cuts to the military budget, neither team appeared at the 2013 show, but the Blue Angels appeared at the 2014 show.

All branches of the military are represented at the show.
