Dayton Will Host Air Show With US Thunderbirds this Weekend


DAYTON – The 46 annual Dayton Air show will commence this weekend featuring US Air Force Thunderbirds.

The 2021 CenterPoint Energy Dayton Air Show on July 10th and

Some of the highlights

AeroShell Aerobatic Team – This award-winning formation team will remind you of yesteryear when
they thrill spectators with their four, 600-horsepower, radial engine T-6 Texan aerobatic routine.
• Mike Wiskus – Watch this National Aerobatic Champion’s incredible performance in his Lucas Oil highly-modified Pitts aircraft “Super Stinker”. If you can believe it, he bought the aircraft on eBay as a
wrecked airplane.
• Jacquie B…Ladies, it’s Time to Fly – See this accomplished female aerobatic pilot put her Extra 300S aircraft through the paces. She spends time inspiring children to do great things. Go girl!
• Shockwave – Powered by three afterburning jet engines producing 36,000 HP, Shockwave is the Guinness Book world-record holder for the fastest jet truck in the world at 376 MPH.

US Military will be on scene for meets and greets

opportunity to thank the City of Dayton, City of Vandalia, Wright Patterson Air Force Base, all the sponsors, volunteers, and fans for making the show possible. “This would not be possible without all of you, and we look
forward to a sensational weekend,” he added.
