FLOWOOD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Some of the most talented daredevils of the sky flew into the Mississippi Air National Guard Base in Flowood Thursday morning.

The U.S. Navy pilots are in town to visit before the Jackson Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport's airshow this May. The Blue Angels are known for fascinating tricks in the sky, going as fast as 700 miles per hour and flying as close as 18 inches apart.

"It is a dream and it is very exciting to be a part of this organization and to be representing the 550,000 Marine Corps sailors and marines and that's the honor of what we're going," said Blue Angel Pilot, Lieutenant Commander Michael Cheng.

"As is tradition with the Airport Authority we will not charge an entry fee for the show, but we will ask you to work with us on parking, we will have designated parking lots we do have to charge a fee for that, you must reserve parking ahead of time," said The Jackson Airport Authority's COO, Bonnie Wilson.

The airshow is May 11th and 12th. The airport will launch the website...Jacksonairshow.com with more information later this month.
