Planes pierced through the sky, and all eyes were glued on them at the Owensboro Air Show Saturday.

The big show brought out hundreds to the Riverfront in Downtown Owensboro to grab a seat and watch the performances over the Ohio River.

"We got here about 30 minutes ago and it was packed full of people so we're trying to find a good spot by the park." said Whitney King, a spectator at the event.

With performances from the T-38 Talon Aircraft and the F-22 Raptor Demo Team, people were most excited for The U.S. Navy Blue Angels.

After being postponed last year due to COVID-19, residents like, Lyndsay Coomes said she is excited for the shows to return this year.

"It's nice to be able to have a little bit of normalcy and get out and do something fun and it's an awesome day for it," said Coomes.

For some, the show is an annual tradition, for others, it was their first show.

Regardless of how many times someone attends, the roaring sound of the aircraft is unforgettable.

"You feel it when you're out here." said Dustin Boyer, a spectator at the event.

For many, it was an event worth experiencing.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
