Duluth, MN is flying high with the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels as the headliner act for the 2014 Duluth Air Show coming to the Duluth International Airport August 23 – 24, 2014. The Duluth Air Show is the largest air show in Minnesota and it is never a disappointment. All ages will enjoy the symmetry and aerobatics of these professional flyers.
This year’s air show will also feature the U.S. Air Force’s Heritage Flight with two aircraft from World War II – the P38 Lightning and the P-47 Thunderbolt followed by the modern day F-22 Raptor, a stealth fighter. The Lightning has special significance to the area as it is the same aircraft flown by native Richard Bong. Superior, Wisconsin’s Richard I. Bong Historical Center has a grounded version of this same craft.
This year’s show is also special for “The Journey to Tomorrow” educational exhibit on loan from NASA. In addition to this special exhibit, visitors to Duluth and the Air Show can view various planes and helicopters up close.
Plan to get to the Air Show early by staying the night at the Duluth Edgewater Hotel. Make it two nights and you can save even more and not worry about trying to get your visit to Duluth’s Air Show done in time to leave town in a hurry.
