Bethpage Air show

Every Memorial Day weekend, Bethpage Federal Credit Union sponsors an air show at Jones Beach.  I went to Jones Beach on the Friday before Memorial Day and stumbled upon the air show's dress rehearsal.

Because the air show is presented by various branches of the military, a few military land vehicles were on display.

There were stunt planes.


The Golden Knights did some parachuting.

The GEICO Typesetters gave us a demonstration of WW II aircraft.

And the Thunderbirds showed us modern jets.

After the show was over, I saw a helicopter  hovering over the water.

I have no idea what it was doing, but another helicopter was doing the same thing at the other end of the beach.

It was fun and exciting, even more so because it was a surprise treat.
