Heat hangs over Ohio air show


Some high temperatures will dog the high-flying performances at this weekend's annual Dayton Air Show.

Advance ticket sales were strong for the two-day event featuring the famed Blue Angels, other precision flying demonstrations, historical planes, skydivers, wing walkers and more in the area that was home to the aviation pioneering Wright Brothers.

The Dayton Daily News reports the only figurative dark cloud is the expected triple-digit temperatures.

Show general manager Brenda Kerfoot says spectators need to take precautions against the heat.

She says the impact on attendance won't be known until Monday.

Regional officials say a typical year's show with good weather brings as many as 75,000 people, with an economic impact of more than $3 million.
