Dayton Air Show Ready for Return of Military Aircraft, Including Blue Angels

DAYTON -- The Dayton Air Show is ready to fly high again after a turbulent 2013 season.

Attendance at the popular Dayton Air Show suffered in 2013 when the federal government's sequestration forced the U.S. military to ground all its planes and participation at air shows across the country.

The Blue Angels military precision flying team is scheduled to fly both days of this year's air show, June 28-29.

Joining the Blue Angels will be the U.S. Marine Corps AV-8B Harrier “Jump Jet,” the Air Force Academy’s Wings of Blue parachute team and the U.S. Coast Guard’s 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.

Air Show organizers say ticket prices remain unchanged from 2013. They can be purchased at or at a discount at area Kroger stores.
