July 14, 2018

CHICOPEE, Mass. (AP) — The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds are coming to Massachusetts.

The precision aerial demonstration team is scheduled to perform Saturday and Sunday at the Great New England Air and Space Show at Westover Air Reserve Base in Chicopee.

It’s the first time the Thunderbirds have performed at Westover in a decade.

There are 18 different aerial acts each day, including the U.S. Army’s Golden Knights skydiving team, several modern aircraft and World War II-era aircraft including a P-51 Mustang, a Corsair and a British Spitfire.

In addition, several aircraft will be on display on the ground.

The schedule isn’t released for security reasons, but the Thunderbirds, as the headline act, typically perform near the end of each day.

The event is open to the public and admission and parking is free.
