JONES BEACH, N.Y. -- Saturday's storms first delayed and ultimately cancelled the Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach.
Initially, the low visibility was the problem, and later it was the heavy rain and lightning.
Attendees were evacuated from Jones Beach as the weather got worse.
"The sun came out. We got our sunscreen on, started playing some music. Then they said, sorry folks, gotta clear the beach, gotta try it another day, I guess," show attendee Brandon Lacey said.
Flight fans will get another chance to watch the show Sunday. It's continuing as planned started at 10 a.m.
As many as 300,000 people are expected to attend. Officials are promising a safe and secure event.
"The toll plazas leading into Jones Beach were eliminated years ago. So you go right to the parking field. If you monitor the park app and the Bethpage Air Show app, you'll see what parking fields are open and you just go to those parking fields and there are minimum delays," said New York State Parks Regional Director George Gorman. "It's a great day for us to honor our veterans, honor our military and honor those who have fallen in service to their country."
The eliteare headlining for the first time in three years.
