BETHPAGE, L.I. — The Bethpage Air Show, scheduled for May 23 and 24 at Jones Beach State Park on Long Island, has become the latest event to cancel in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“We are deeply saddened that this year’s Bethpage Air Show will not take place, however it is of the utmost importance that New Yorkers remain at home during the continued coronavirus pandemic,” wrote the organizers in a statement. “The Bethpage Air Show honors our nation’s military, so this year we ask our fans to also honor all those who are on the front lines fighting this deadly virus, including our health systems, first responders, essential workers and the military and National Guard for their unified support and response to the coronavirus.”
Over 13,000 people have died from coronavirus in New York State.
