Dirato adds you'll also see the F-16 Viper Demo Team, "As we like to call them, they're the sports car of military fighter jets."

The Skytypers will perform in World War II vintage jets.

"They do formation flying, and you get to see some of the maneuvers that took place way back when protecting our freedom."

The aerial spectacular, back in its usual May time slot, is set to begin Saturday and Sunday at 11:30 a.m. with the final flyby at about 3:00 p.m.
