They're back! Blue Angels to headline Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach
The Bethpage Federal Credit Union and the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation have announced that the United States Navy Blue Angels will headline the 18th Annual Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach.
The 2022 show will take place Saturday, May 28 and Sunday May 29.
It was also announced that the United States Army Golden Knights Parachute Team, the Royal Canadian Air Force Snowbirds and the F-22 Raptor will also be performing.
“We are thrilled to welcome the United States Navy Blue Angels back to Long Island in 2022,” said George Gorman, regional director of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historical Preservation. “The last time the Blues performed on Long Island was in 2018 as the 2020 show was canceled due to the pandemic. Planning for the show has already begun and with two jet teams performing, two native New Yorkers on the Blue Angels’ team, and a host of other noted pilots on board, this year’s show is going to be spectacular!”
Over 367,000 people attended the Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach the last time the squadron headlined in 2018.
Additional 2022 performers will be announced shortly.
