P-47s won't fly in Saturday's Shrinersfest Air Show - 14 News, WFIE, Evansville, Henderson, Owensboro

Weather halts P-47's performance in Saturday's Shrinersfest Air Show

Posted: Updated:

The P-47 Thunderbolts, the World War II planes made in Evansville during the war, won't be in Saturday's Shrinersfest Air Show.

Officials with the Shrinersfest say Saturday's show will still go on, but these planes won't be involved.

They tell us it's to do with the weather in the area where the planes are currently on the ground and it's keeping them from arriving in Evansville.

14 News is told that the P-47's performance in Sunday's show is still undetermined.

We'll have much more on this and Mayor Lloyd Winnecke's proclamation of July 6 as P-47 Thunderbolt Homecoming Day coming up on 14 News at six.
