Warbirds to take flight on Memorial Day Weekend

The American Airpower Museum will add its vintage military aircraft to the Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach State Park on Memorial Day Weekend.

The museum’s fleet that will take to the skies include a B-25 Mitchell Bomber, Douglas C-47 Skytrain troop transporter, Grumman TBM Avenger Torpedo Bomber, Curtiss P-40 Flying Tiger, P-51D Mustang Fighter, AT-6 Texan Warbird and AT28D5 Nomad Vietnam Era Fighter.

Those that can’t make it to Jones Beach can go to the museum’s hangar at Republic Airport on Saturday, May 29 and Sunday, May 30 to see the planes taxi, take off and perform some fly-bys, before they join the show at the beach.

The museum also welcomes three visiting U.S. Navy EF/A-18 Super Hornets from Thursday, May 27 through Sunday, May 30. The supersonic combat jets are not in the Jones Beach show, but they will be at the museum’s Republic Airport complex those four days. 

Admission for adults is $15, seniors and veterans are $10 and children ages 5 through 12 are $8. Tickets and pre-registration is not required and admission is on a first-come-first-serve basis.

The hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the American Airpower Museum located at Hangar 3 at 1230 New Highway in Farmingdale.
