MINOT, N.D. — This year's air show at the Minot Air Force Base will be headlined by the U.S. Air Force's F-16 Viper Demo Team and the U.S. Army Golden Knights parachute team.

The free Northern Neighbors Day Air Show is scheduled for Aug. 13. This will be the first air show at the base in seven years.

The Viper Demo Team will perform several maneuvers to show the unique capabilities of the F-16 Fighting Falcon, which is considered one of the Air Force's premier multi-role fighters.

The base says attendees will also get to see the Smoke-n-Thunder Jet Car accelerate to speeds approaching 400 mph, as well as a helicopter demonstration.

A weapon upload demonstration on a B-52 is also planned.
