Two of the nation's premier aerial demonstration teams will highlight the 2009 Robins Air Show, scheduled for May 2-3.

The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds will perform precision aerobatics in their F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft, traveling at more than 400 mph with their wingtips only inches apart. They will be joined by the U.S. Army Parachute Demonstration Team, the Golden Knights, whose precision skydiving abilities are renowned worldwide.

Both demonstration teams will be joined by other air show performers, military aircraft demonstrations, and aircraft and equipment static displays. The event is free and open to the public. More information to follow as it becomes available.
