WANTAGH - The Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach was back in business today after weather grounded the annual event yesterday.

A lone F-18 from the Royal Canadian Air Force tore through the skies above Jones Beach, thrilling some onlookers, while others speculated that the Canadian fighter was a substitute for the Blue Angels, which were grounded by federal sequestration cuts.

State Parks Spokesman George Gorman says that's not the case. He says the Royal Canadian Air Force was slated to partake in the event before the cuts were even announced.

World War II era fighter pilots and civilian Sean Tucker also performed.
