Airpower Over the Midwest to Feature the USAF Thunderbirds at Scott AFB This Weekend

By Carmelo Turdo
After taking a year off, "Airpower Over the Midwest" returns to Scott AFB, IL this weekend.  Airshow fans were last treated to the USN Blue Angels in 2010, and 2012 brings the USAF Thunderbirds to familiar territory.  The Thunderbirds have been the headliner at Scott AFB airshows for decades, and with mild temperatures promised for this weekend, there is sure to be a large audience. Other performers include Special Operations Command Parachute Team, B-2 Spirit Fly-By Saturday only, Randy Ball's MiG-17, Herb & Ditto T-28 and a Tuskegee Airmen AT-6 among others.  An impressive array of static display aircraft will be on hand as well.  For more information on the event, please visit
