OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) - The U.S. Air Force Demonstration Squadron known as the Thunderbirds are leading a lineup coming to the Owensboro Air Show next month.

Show organizers say the riverfront performance will feature six F-16C Fighting Falcons doing choreographed maneuvers.

Another new addition is the Black Daggers of the U.S. Army Special Operations Command Unit. During their two-mile drop, the paratroopers use hands, arms, legs and shoulders to control flight.

Other aviators in the show include John Klatt, Mike Goulian, Gregory Colyer, Gene Soucy and Matt Younkin.

The event will also feature paid flights on the Yankee Lady, a World War II-era B-17 bomber.



The event begins on Sept. 11 and goes through Sept. 13.
