Last year it was the coronavirus that caused the Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach to be canceled, and this Memorial Day weekend the rain caused an unprecedented back-to-back washout, but the event is now set to soar on Monday, organizers said.

New York State Office of Parks Recreation and Historic Preservation announced Sunday morning that this year will be the first time the performance will be held on Memorial Day since being launched at Jones Beach State Park in 2004. All passes purchased for Saturday and Sunday will be honored, officials said.

“I’m tremendously grateful for all the partners, performers and staff who are pulling together to make Monday’s show happen,” said State Parks Commissioner Erik Kulleseid. “We’re excited for the traditional summer season at Jones Beach, starting with the Bethpage Air Show.”

Committed performers include the United States Air Force Thunderbirds, the United States Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt (Warthog), Golden Knights, GEICO Skytypers, Mike Goulian, David Windmiller, and others.

The show will take place 12 to 3 p.m. May 31. For the latest information, visit bethpageairshow.com
