OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) - The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds are back in the air this weekend after a pilot crashed during a flyover at an Air Force Academy graduation in Colorado, grounding the team for two weeks.

The elite performance team is performing Saturday and Sunday in Ocean City, Maryland, during the Ocean City Air Show.

The team was grounded after Maj. Alex Turner was forced to ditch his plane shortly after flying over the crowd watching President Barack Obama’s commencement address June 2 in Colorado Springs. He wasn’t seriously injured.
