    2024 Bethpage Airshow at Jones Beach

    2024 Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach - May 25th and 26th

    The Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach is just over a month away, so I decided to start this year's thread for it!

    Here's the official website link to find out the latest show info:
    Bethpage Air Show | at Jones Beach State Park

    The 2024 Bethpage Air Show will take place Saturday, May 25, and Sunday, May 26, from 10AM-3PM.


    2024 Confirmed Performers:


    • MILITARY:
      • A-10C Thunderbolt II Demo Team
      • United States Navy Blue Angels
      • United States Navy F-35C Demo Team
      • United States Army Golden Knights

    • CIVILIAN:
      • American Airpower Museum Warbirds
      • David Windmiller
      • Mike Goulian
      • Skytypers
      • Farmingdale State College Flying Rams
      • Warbird Thunder Airshows




    Once again, the show is a bit light on the Thunder :( I miss seeing the Canadian Snowbirds and CF-18 teams, they have not come for a VERY long time. I would also like to see the B1 Lancer make a return, it's been 17 years since they performed here! I'd also like to see one of the B-29s make an appearance. I have NEVER seen a B-2 or B-52 in person, would love to see one of those as well.

    I agree the shows are getting repetitive. I will always still go, but it would be super awesome to get some new aircraft every few years. This year there is no F22 either? Does anyone know why we seem to get a shortage of military performers every year?

    Personally, I'm grateful we get a lineup like this year in and year out. Some places don't even get to see the Blues or Thunderbirds, therefore get replaced by a jet team such as the F-22, Growler/Super Hornet, F-16 as the finishing act; which makes the demo team pool smaller for Jones Beach.

    Will be sad this is the last time we see the A-10 demo but grateful that they'll be at the show for the farewell tour

    Glad I finally got my password problems to the site figured out and that the Jones Beach Air Show thread was started up already!
    It's also great to see the 106th Air National Guard Rescue Wing Demo has been added to the performers line-up this week on the show's website too!!

    BTW, if you want to get ready for the show in 2 weeks, you might want to check out the new Blue Angels IMAX movie coming to
    a limited number of IMAX theaters next Friday for only one week before it's released on Amazon Prime on May 24th.
    Here's the latest trailer for the new Blue Angels IMAX movie that was just released and it looks AMAZING!!!

    Well, just a week to go before all the Air show festivities start at Republic Airport!!
    FYI - the FAA has posted the TFR (Temporary Flight Restriction) for the Jones Beach Show and the air space

    over the beach will be closed on Thurs., May 23rd from 11:45AM - 2:00PM, and then again from 3:00PM - 4:30PM.
    On Fri., Sat. & Sun (May 24th - 26th) the air space will be closed daily from 10AM to 3PM.

    The typical arrival schedule for the Blues is #7 usually arrives later on Wed. afternoon/ early evening,
    after their show at the USNA in Annapolis, and then the rest of their jets and Fat Albert will arrive on
    Thursday morning between 9AM - 11:30AM. From the TFR, it sounds like the Blues will probably do their circles
    around Jones Beach between 11:45AM and 2:00PM, and use 3:00 - 4:30 as a back up incase they're running late?

    Also, heard the A-10 Demo Jets will be parked on the American Airpower Ramp which is great news,
    cause this way we can see their specially painted A-10s up close that you won't want to miss,
    especially since this is the final year the A-10 Demo Team will ever be flying sadly !!
    Here's a video of the sweet looking A-10s arriving at Fort Lauderdale's show last weekend >>>

    Yes it is, and I heard F-35C Demo Team should be arriving on Thurs. around 5:30PM at ISP,
    if all goes well with their long cross-country trip from NAS Lemoore in CA.

    The American Airpower Museum posted this for their Memorial Day weekend's activities from Friday to Sunday.
    It's just odd they won't be open on Monday for Memorial Day like they usually are?

    BTW, just read this on the AAM website and it says they will be open from 10AM to 4PM on Memorial Day also.

    Legends of Airpower & The Jones Beach Air Show 2024 - American Airpower Museum

    "Watch AAMís awe-inspiring aircraft take off to perform practice flybys over Republic all day Friday, May 24th. Get up close and personal with these historic bombers and fighters of yesteryear! Then join us at AAM to catch even more aerial action Saturday and Sunday, as our warbirds lift off to perform in the air show! Flight experiences are also available each day on one of AAMís AT-6 Texans, plus our red WACO Biplane! Park for FREE in AAMís lot or along New Highway. Food and Ice Cream trucks are available onsite. AAM is also open Monday, Memorial Day, closing at 4:00 p.m."

    Sucks that the recent runway construction at FRG has neutered the museum's ability to host visitor aircraft such as the B-17 Yankee Lady or the CAF birds such as Fifi. Nice to see the A-10 demo team should be parked by the museum though.

    FYI - Blue Angel #7 is due into FRG on Wed. afternoon around 4:30 and it will probably
    test out the temporary arresting gear also that they installed on 32/14 over the weekend.
    The rest of the Blue Angels jets and Fat albert are due into FRG around 9:45AM on Thurs.

    Is it possible to track #7 on Flight Radar? I recall sometimes you can and sometimes you can’t. Also, anyone know it’s call sign to search if it is trackable? Tnx
