4/7/2015 – 2015 THUNDER AIR SHOW ACTS RELEASED

April 7, 2015 Louisville, KY.  The Kentucky Derby Festival has released the line-up for this year’s Thunder Over Louisville Air Show.  The 2015 show, set for 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 18th, will be non-stop with both military and civilian air acts.  A full list in alphabetical order is below.

The show includes an appearance by the U.S.A.F. Thunderbirds.  The Air Force Team will send 2 jets for this year’s show.  Although the jets will not be able to perform the aerobatics of the Thunderbirds demonstration due to changes with the air box, they will still be a featured air craft in the air show. While in town, the Thunderbirds will also participate in a Civil Air Patrol class, visit local schools and make an appearance at the Air Force recruitment booth on the South Great Lawn at Thunder.

“We’re thrilled to have the Thunderbirds return after nearly 20 years,” said Kentucky Derby Festival President and CEO Mike Berry. “We have always appreciated the support our show receives from all branches of the military. And this year is no different.”

Also on tap for this year’s show are the U.S. Army Golden Knights, performing two parachute demonstrations; the Kentucky Air National Guard returns with their C-130; as well as the U.S. Marines Harrier demonstration.

Other acts in this year’s line-up include Team AeroDynamix – the world’s largest air show team with 11 aircraft, as well as Trojan Horseman, Bill Leff Nightshow, among others.  A complete list of this year’s air show performers is below:
