LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The Thunder Over Louisville air show always brings some of the best pilots in the nation to Louisville. This year, they will be joined by one of the elite flying groups in the U.S. military.

After being shut down from performing for much of 2013 due to federal budget sequestration, the Kentucky Derby Festival announced the U.S. Navy Blue Angels have added Thunder Over Louisville to their 2014 schedule.

The Navy's flight demonstration squadron and their F/A-18 Hornet aircraft last took part in Thunder in 2006.
