The Bethpage Air Show took to the skies at Jones Beach on Monday with nail-biting synchronized jet stunts and demonstrations like a propeller plane diving down at a seeming 90-degree angle.

Other attractions included the Army Golden Knights parachuting down as colorful smoke filled the sky and six WWII planes showcasing maneuvers used in that period.
