They’re back! US Navy Blue Angels to return to Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach
Bethpage Federal Credit Union and the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation announced the U.S. Navy Blue Angels are back in the lineup for the 18th Annual Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach.
The show will take place on Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Returning for their ninth headlining performance, the Blue Angels will be back on Long Island following the cancellation of their last scheduled performance in 2020, due to the pandemic.
Military performers joining the Blue Angels are the United States Army Golden Knights Parachute Team, the Air Combat Command F-22 Raptor team, the U.S. Navy F-35C Tac Demonstration Team, the U.S. Coast Guard and the 106th Rescue Wing NY Air National Guard HC - 130 / HH 60 Demonstration Team.
“This year’s highly anticipated show is going to be spectacular! We are very pleased to welcome the Blue Angels back to Long Island after their four-year absence and look forward to embracing the team’s two New York teammates,” said George Gorman, regional director for the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historical Preservation.
The Bethpage Air Show is free to the public, but the standard $10 vehicle use fee will be collected each day upon entry to the state park. For 2022 NYS Empire Pass Card holders, there is no vehicle use fee charge.
