Air show at Robins Air Force BaseBY KELSEY DAENEN
The U.S. Air Force Air Demonstration Squadron, also known as the Thunderbirds, will perform at the Thunder Over Georgia Air Show at Robins Air Force Base in Warner Robins, Oct. 1-2. The Thunderbirds will execute formation flights and solo routines in an hour-long demonstration showcasing the flight capabilities of the F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter jets.
The Army Black Daggers, a parachute demonstration team, will perform 12,500-foot drops, free-falling at about 120 miles per hour.
A rare treat will be the performance by World War II vintage "warbirds" aircraft, including a P-51 Mustang fighter aircraft, Nakajima B5N bomber and F4U Corsair fighter-bomber. Randy Ball, a jet demonstration pilot, will demonstrate aerobatic techniques with his MiG-17F.
The Disabled American Veterans will be on hand to answer any questions regarding veterans' affairs.
The event is free. Gates open at 9 a.m., and the opening ceremony begins at 11 a.m. For more info, visit www.robins.af.mil/airshow or call (478) 222-7469.
