A statement was released by air show officials about Saturday’s postponement.

“Following the advisement of the National Weather Service, due to extremely poor weather conditions, today’s Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach has been cancelled to ensure the safety of all air show performers and fans. Anyone who had purchased a parking pass for today’s sold out show, will be authorized to use their QR code for two free passes to enter any Long Island, New York State Park throughout the summer. For up-to-date information about tomorrow’s show, including information about possible delays, please visit the Bethpage Air Show’s Facebook page. As we navigate the weekend’s weather, we appreciate the support of our loyal fans, and remain hopeful that tomorrow’s show will go on as planned.”

Many fans came out to the event, but were disappointed to find out about the postponement.

Among the many exciting events and performers this Memorial Day weekend:

Golden Knights
For over fifty-six years members of the U. S. Army Parachute Team have been marking the milestones of achievement and an evolution of excellence serving as “Ambassadors” of the Army’s only official Demonstration team. The Golden Knights portray the image of being the most formidable parachuting competitors and demonstrators in the world today.
U.S. Coast Guard Search and Rescue Demonstration
These dedicated professionals assume the watch 24 hours a day, 365 days a year standing true to the Coast Guard’s motto “Semper Paratus,” which means “Always Ready.”

United States Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt II

The A-10 Thunderbolt II is the first Air Force aircraft to be specifically designed for close air support of ground forces.
United States Air Force Thunderbirds
In 1947, while the jet age was still in its infancy, military aviation was hurtled into the future with the creation of the U.S. Air Force as a separate service. Just six years later, on May 25, 1953, the Air Force’s official air demonstration team, designated the 3600th Air Demonstration Unit, was activated at Luke Air Force Base, Ariz. The unit adopted the name “Thunderbirds,” influenced in part by the strong Native American culture and folklore from the southwestern United States where Luke Air Force Base is located. Seven officers and 22 enlisted were selected for the first demonstration team. From these humble beginnings and this group of men, the Air Force Thunderbird legend was born.

A reminder: If you do not have an event parking pass, please do not drive down to Jones Beach State Park for the show.
