Bethpage Federal Credit Union Air Show at Jones Beach 2010 - Long Island Press
Long Island is beautiful upside down. Thanks to Lt. Col. John Klatt, I can say that with certainty.

“I’ve always enjoyed airplanes,” says Klatt, who began flying at 17. “My dad used to take me to air shows as a kid and I was always excited about it. That kid over there washing air planes, pretty soon he’ll be taking flying lessons, too.”
Klatt, who earned money for flying lessons by washing airplanes as a kid, will be performing at the Bethpage Federal Credit Union Air Show at Jones Beach as a member of the Air National Guard, a reserve component of the United States Air Force.
