Air show returns to Offutt Air Force Base

Posted: Updated:

OFFUTT AIR FORCE BASE, Neb. (AP) - Offutt Air Force Base will host an air show this weekend after federal budget problems forced the cancellation of last year's event.

The free event on Saturday and Sunday will feature both the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels and the F-22 Raptor aerial demonstration teams along with several other flying teams.

The public will have a chance to visit Offutt Air Force Base and learn more about the base on the southeast side of the Omaha area. Gates open at 9 a.m. and flying begins around noon.

A free shuttle bus will be offered from various locations around Bellevue, including the former Southroads mall and Bellevue East and West high schools.

More details of the air show and all the aircraft that will be on display are available online at www.offuttairshow.com .
