BETHPAGE, N.Y. (PIX11) — The Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach was halted just as it took flight on Saturday, according to event organizers.

The United States Navy Blue Angels was set to headline the event. The show initially went as planned after practice was canceled on Thursday due to poor weather conditions.

The event organizers canceled the remainder of the event due to forecasted thunderstorms and lightning.

“We apologize to our fans but hope you will come out for tomorrow’s show which will continue as planned,” the organizers said in a statement.

The event will start at 10 a.m. Sunday.
