Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach 2018 photos

Planes of all varieties were soaring across Long Island skies in the days leading up to Memorial Day for the 15th annual Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach State Park. Here are highlights of some of the eye-catching plane stunts, beachgoers and more as the Blue Angels landed on Long Island Thursday, rehearsed Friday and performed Saturday. Sunday's show was canceled because of inclement weather.
