ST. GEORGE, Utah — The U.S. Navy Blue Angels will be the featured performers at the next Thunder Over Utah Air Show at the municipal airport in St. George.

The show is set for March 17-18.

This will be the Blue Angels' first time performing in southern Utah.

The Blue Angels are known for their precision formation flying. They will be flying six distinctive blue and gold F-18 Hornets and will be accompanied by their C-130 "Fat Albert" support aircraft, which also will perform at the show.

The team will meet with air show officials next week to discuss the March performance.
