Don't look now, but we're already just four weeks away from the 2017 Owensboro Air Show. And in addition to all the excitement of the show, heroes from the community will be honored.

During the September 22nd activities, the Owensboro Air Show and Kentucky Legend will sponsor the recognition of first responders, active-duty military, and our veterans and THEY will receive free admission that night.

Five of these heroes will also be the winners of a sightseeing flight on the H-1 Huey helicopter Saturday just ahead of the show.

Plus, all spectators will have a chance to check a huge array of civilian and military aircraft AND get a closer look at both the F-18 and F-16 fighter jets in addition to other military aircraft.

And if you've never seen vintage machines like the T-34, T-6 Texan, TBM Avenger and others, you HAVE to take advantage. They will all be on display.

The Friday night activities will conclude with thrilling aerial performances by the military parachute demonstration team and Team Aeroshell.

This will be followed by the Independence Bank fireworks show.
