The Angels feature six F/A-18 Hornets, which fly at speeds of 700 m.p.h. and some of the maneuvers have the wings of the jets just 18 inches apart.
Their highest point of flight is the vertical roll, performed by the Opposing Solo (up to 15,000 feet) and the lowest is the Sneak Pass (as low as 50 feet) performed by the Lead Solo.

They put on their amazing performance at the Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach Saturday, but Sunday's show has been canceled due to rain.
WATCH "KICKOFF TO A LONG ISLAND SUMMER" SATURDAY (MAY 26) AT 7:00 P.M. ON CHANNEL 7 AND ABC7NY!
Keep in mind this show has easily seen 200,000 people fill up the beach on a single day, so get there early! Jones Beach recommends bringing sunscreen, earplugs, cameras, bags, backpacks and coolers.
Kites are prohibited. These can easily distract the performers. No pets, unless it's an aid for the handicapped.
