The time change from 3 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. is to accommodate the participation of additional aircraft in the show, Kentucky Derby Festival spokeswoman Aimee Boyd said. 

The WAVE 3 News Storm Tracking Team says it's possible the planes won't get off the ground at the scheduled start time because of heavy rain forecast for downtown at that hour.
