11th annual Bethpage Air Show kicks off at Jones Beach

Huge crowds gathered at Jones Beach State Park for the 11th annual Bethpage Air Show.



The main event was the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels. The team did not perform last year because of federal budget cuts.



The Blue Angels were joined by the American Airpower Museum Warbirds, the GEICO Skytypers and the Golden Knights.



Approximately 400,000 people are expected to flood the beach throughout the weekend.



The aviation spectacle will conclude today with another performance, lasting from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
