Blue Angels return to air show at Jones Beach

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The U.S. Navy Blue Angels are back on Long Island. They arrived at Republic Airport in Farmingdale in time for the 11th annual Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach.

Crowds gathered to see the planes in person. They took pictures and shot video.

It's a homecoming of sorts for the Blue Angels. They suspended military air shows last year because of federal budget cuts.

A new addition to this year's show is the Screamin' Sasquatch, a revamped 1929 plane with a state-of-the-art jet engine.

The air show has become a Memorial Day tradition. Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to attend.
