Precautions taken for Ohio air show in heat wave

The heat wave blanketing much of the country has led to precautions at an annual air show planned this weekend in southwest Ohio.

Organizers of this year's Dayton Air Show say there will be an emergency responder team and three tents equipped to handle heat exhaustion at the event Saturday and Sunday. The Dayton Daily News reports that water and ice also will be available and vendors will have sunscreen.

This year's show at the Dayton International Airport will feature the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds in their F-16 Flying Falcons and a wing-walking team. Other attractions include a re-enactment of the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, helicopter aerobatics and a jet-powered school bus.

Organizers say they expect about 70,000 to 80,000 people to attend this year's show.
