"This year, we are thrilled to welcome back to Milwaukee the U.S. Navy Blue Angels flight demonstration squadron. This elite crew last joined us in 2017 -- and we're so happy to have them join us again in 2020," said Paul Rogers, Milwaukee Air & Water Show, President.

In 2019, it was the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds which wowed crowds along Milwaukee’s lakefront for this year’s edition of the Milwaukee Air & Water Show.

"We're looking forward to the Air Show this July. Community outreach is key to connecting Americans with our military today -- and that's why we're here getting ready for this air show. The Milwaukee Air & Water Show is one of 29 sites we're going to visit next year -- and we're very excited to come out here and put on a show," said Lt. Commander Adam Kerrick.
