DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - With tight security and without the Blue Angels, the annual two-day Dayton Air Show is set to thrill aviation fans.

Some two dozen military aircraft will be at the 42nd show just north of Dayton in southwest Ohio, along with military and stunt pilots, parachutists and more. The Air Force’s F-22 Raptor and Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet are among the planes in the show, which also features a fiery recreation of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

Organizers say security includes a “sky watch tower” to scan the crowd, license plate readers and random searches of bags and backpacks.

The Blue Angels team was to be the featured attraction, but the elite fighter jet performance team canceled after a member died in a crash while practicing in Tennessee.
