This year’s air show is this Saturday and Sunday and will have a number of military and civilian performances. The show will also have several performances including Aftershock, Jet Truck and an all-veteran jump team.

The US Navy Blue Angels will be the featured performers. The team flew in from Pensacola, Fla. on Thursday, just before rehearsals for the weekend show. While the weather didn’t cooperate fully, officials were hopeful the Blue Angels along with the show’s other performers would have a chance to practice more on Friday.

It’s also a special weekend for Maj. Frank Zastoupil. For him, it’s a return home to Eastern North Carolina. He is a left wingman for the 2021 Blue Angels.

This is also the 75th anniversary of the Blue Angels.
