Where To Watch 

The show can be viewed from the beach or from a boat out on the water. If you choose to go by boat, you’ll want to stay in the area of Zach’s Bay or out in the ocean within view of Jones Beach. You may be able to see the show from nearby beaches, but the further you are from Jones Beach the lower the quality of your view. 

If you go by boat you’ll need to stay within the required coordinates. The Coast Guard will regulate the area and help you find the proper location if you are out of the correct zone. 

What To Bring

Here are some suggestions for things to bring along: 

  • Folding chairs or a blanket to sit on (there is no seating). 
  • Coolers and bags with food and drinks (they will be searched). Some food vendors will be in the area. 
  • Sunscreen or other sun protection. The show is at least 5 hours long so you’ll be out in the sun most of the day during the most direct sunlight hours. 
  • Ear protection. The planes can be very loud, so you’ll want earplugs or ear muffs, especially for young children. 
  • Camera. If you want to get pictures or video of the show beyond what your smartphone can do, you should bring whatever photography equipment you’ll need. 
  • Jacket or sweatshirt. The breeze off the water can feel chilly at times while you are out on the beach. 

What Not To Bring 

There are some items that are not allowed at the Bethpage Air Show: 

  • All pets are prohibited from Jones Beach at all times. 
  • Kites are also prohibited, as they can cause confusion in the air. 
  • Drones and model planes are prohibited in the area of the show. 
  • Glass is prohibited. 

Enjoy the Sun, Sand, and a Spectacular Show 

Be sure to bring the whole family for the 2024 Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach. This show includes heart-stopping aerial tricks and thrilling examples of pilot skill. Experience a piece of history as vintage WWII era planes take to the skies. This event is sure to bring wide-eyed amazement and smiles to the faces of spectators of all ages.
