The roar of jet engines will be heard across the Suncoast this weekend.  The 34th annual Florida International Air Show takes off today in Punta Gorda.      

The United States Air Force Thunderbirds are special guests at this years event for the first time in five years.  The Thunderbirds will perform high speed maneuvers and precision formations for the crowds.

The air show takes to the skies today at 5:30pm at the Punta Gorda airport and runs through the weekend, weather permitting.  Fingers crossed for dry weather!
