DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Officials say the U.S Army Golden Knights will join attractions already announced for the 2019 Dayton Air Show.

Air show officials also say Team Oracle with Sean Tucker and Johnny De Gennaro will be featured in the show scheduled for June 22-23 at Dayton International Airport.

The Golden Knights, formed in 1959, are the Army’s official demonstration team. Members are drawn from U.S. Army paratroopers who have demonstrated excellence in parachuting skills.

Tucker, of Team Oracle, will be flying his Oracle Challenger III. That aircraft will be heading to the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in 2121.

This year’s show will be headlined by a demonstration by the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, which was announced earlier.

Air show officials said the 2018 show drew an estimated 62,000 people.
