NASHVILLE, Tenn.–The Great Tennessee Air Show returns to Smyrna, Tennessee next month on June 8 and 9.
The show will feature the U.S. Navy Blue Angels and the GEICO Skytypers Air Show Team, a squadron of six WWII-era aircraft performing an 18 minute show.
The aircraft used by the Skytypers are WWII SNJs, aircraft which were used to train pilots for the war. The show will also be highlighted by the Blue Angels, whom have strong ties to the town of Smyrna after Captain Jeff Kuss tragically lost his life when his plane crashed during a practice exercise in 2016.
A memorial was built in honor of Kuss following the crash.
The show will also feature the U.S.A.F.F.-16 Viper Demo Team, a U.S. Navy C-130 Fat Albert, the Spirit of Detroit DC-3 and more.
