SANFORD, Fla. — The GEICO Skytypers Air Show Team is returning to the sky.
The team will be performing at the Lockheed Martin Space and Air Show from Oct. 31 to Nov. 1 at the Orlando Sanford International Airport.
Organizers said the six World War II-era aircraft will perform an 18-minute flying demonstration during the air show.
The skytypers create giant messages in the sky by flying in a tight formation.
The air show will be one of the country’s first airshows since many were canceled due to COVID-19.
This year is the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, and the GEICO Skytypers vintage airplanes trained the “greatest generation” of pilots for WWII, organizers said.
“Airshow spectators and aviation enthusiasts will witness our ‘warbirds’ perform a dynamic demonstration designed by team members who served in the U.S. military,” said Larry Arken, squadron commander and team flight lead.
