FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The Fort Wayne Air Show is taking the skies and the ground at the Indiana Air National Guard 122nd Fighter Wing.

You can get up close and personal to many of the planes, such as the Warthogs based here at the 122nd.

There are several planes from across the country on display, including commercial and military planes.

People will be able to tour many planes, including the Texas Raiders B-17.

It is only one nine B-17s still around, and it will be providing rides twice a day.

However, the headline of the Fort Wayne Air Show is the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds.

"Being able to demonstrate the power of these aircraft and show the grace of the maneuveres is truly an honor to do. To reflect the precision and pride of the US Air Force," said Capt. Michael Brewer.

The Fort Wayne Air Show is Saturday and Sunday from noon until 4:00 p.m. Admission is free, but there are VIP tickets available.
