Vero Beach Air Show returns after 16-year hiatus


VERO BEACH, Fla. -  The Vero Beach Air Show returns this weekend after a 16-year hiatus.

Located at the Vero Beach Municipal Airport, planes will be on display and in the air like the A-4 Skyhawk and the P-51 Mustang.

Organizers say all the money raised for the event will help military veterans in Indian River County, but there won’t be any performances from the military because of the sequester.

"Despite the fact that military themselves won't be here. We've got military stuff here and guys are gonna come out here and say 'I was in that, I know that airplane, I know that whatever,' " said Veterans Council of Indian River County President Martin Zickert.

The air show will take place Saturday and Sunday.

Gates open at 9 a.m. and the shows usually start around noon.
