Kansas City Air Show will return in 2015 with the U.S. Navy Blue Angels

Mark your calendars for Aug. 22 and 23, 2015.

That’s when the Kansas City Air Show returns to Wheeler Downtown Airport after a three-year absence.

The show will be headlined by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels demonstration team and will include other military and civilian performers and ground displays. The Mid-America Youth Aviation Association will organize and manage the event.

The Blue Angels had been scheduled to be in Kansas City this year, but they had to cancel because of government sequestration.

“We are very pleased to once again bring a world-class air show to the great fans here in Kansas City,” Ed Noyallis, executive director and chairman of the Mid-America Youth Aviation Association, said in a statement.
