DAYTON, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - The headlining act of this weekend's Vectren Dayton Air Show has landed safety after rain delayed their arrival.

The U.S. Navy Blue Angels were supposed to arrive Thursday afternoon, but didn't end up getting here until Thursday night, thanks to Mother Nature. It's been four years since the Blue Angels performed in Dayton. Their last performance was canceled after pilot Marine Capt. Jeff Kuss was killed in a crash in Tennessee.

The Blue Angels are based in Pensacola, Florida pilots typically spend two years with the team and are then returned to their fleet. The goal of the team is to showcase the pride and professionalism of the U.S. Navy.
