Lucky Teen Gets Early Taste of Air Show Excitement
DAYTON -- The U.S. Navy Blue Angels, one of Americas premier military jet teams, will arrive Thursday morning in Dayton before flying on June 28-29 in the Vectren Dayton Air Show Presented by Kroger. The event will be held at the Dayton International Airport and marks the return of military participation in air shows across the country after last years hiatus.
In addition to the Blue Angels will be the U.S. Marine Corps AV-8B Harrier Jump Jet, the Air Force Academys Wings of Blue parachute team and the U.S. Coast Guards HH-65 Dolphin search-and-rescue demonstration. Warbird acts include the F-86 Sabre jet warbird, a P-51D Mustang and a rare F4U-5 Corsair.
"That's all that exciting because last year due to the military sequestration we didn't have any military participation in the air show," said public relations director Tim Gaffney.
Air show legends Sean D. Tucker and Patty Wagstaff will also fly. Fifteen-year-old Centerville High student Alberta Dempsey won a Dayton Air Show essay contest and joined Tucker on Wednesday for an early flight.
"Looking forward to the experience and sensation of flying," said Dempsey before going up. "Is it going to be rough turbulence or will it be smooth. Am I'm going to be freaking out about being in the air or am I going to be OK?"
"It's a way of introducing young people to aviation by giving them flight in an airplane with the pilot and this case it's one of the best pilots in the world," said Gaffney.
ABC 22/FOX 45 Reporter Wale Aliyu will also be going up in the air both Wednesday and Thursday. Catch his reports on the evening news on ABC 22 & FOX 45.
The gates for the air show open at 9 a.m. this weekend and the flying acts go from noon until 4 p.m.
The North American AeroShell Aerobatic Team will add to the action with its four-ship formation of T-6 warbirds. The Shockwave jet truck will bring a spectacle of smoke, fire and jet-speed drag racing on the airport runway. The one-of-a-kind Wright B Flyer, a flying lookalike of the Wright brothers first production airplane, will remind spectators that all this airpower had its roots in Wilbur and Orvilles bicycle shop in Dayton.
Ticket prices remain unchanged from 2013. The popular Chairmans Club, Pavilion, Family 4 Pack, and Blue Sky Chalet are now on sale, offering a range of seating amenities. Tickets can be purchased through at www.daytonairshow.com. Deep discount general admission tickets are on sale at more than 100 Kroger stores in the Dayton-Cincinnati region.
