A long-time summer tradition is coming back to Rhode Island this May.
The Rhode Island National Guard announced it will be hosting
the Rhode Island National Guard Open House and Air Show once again, coming up
May 17-18 2014 at Quonset Air National Guard Base.
Headliners will include the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, the Black
Daggers Jump Team, Sean D. Tucker, the Flash Fire Jet Truck, and many more.
"Since 1991, the Rhode
Island National Guard has participated in the premier Open House / Air Show in
the northeast. On behalf of the outstanding men and women of the RI
Guard, I am extremely pleased to announce the return of this well-attended
event, showcasing our organization and all of the dedicated people who make it
happen," said Maj. Gen. Kevin R. McBride, the Adjutant General and Commanding
General of the Rhode Island National Guard.
The Air Show was canceled last year due to Federal budget cuts.
