Blue Angels Join Jones Beach 2014 Air Show

Wantagh - (WALK) World Renowned Naval Aviators the Blue Angels will peform over Jones Beach during next year's Memorial Day Weekend celebration, according to the U.S. Navy.

The Blue Angels suspended air shows in 2013 because of federal budget cuts, known as the budget sequestration.  The sequestration remains in effect, but the Angels have booked 65 shows in 34 U.S. locations, according to a press release.

"Our peformances provide a unique opportunity to inspire millions to connect with and support our service members, and we are looking forward to an exciting 2014 season," said Blue Angels' commanding officer and flight leader Commander Thomas Frosch.

The Angles fly F/A-18 Hornets. The Jones Beach performance dates are May 24 and 25.
