I've been an airplane nerd for years.  Growing up, I used to see the Blue Angels every summer, and couldn't wait until the air show would come back.  Now, we've got one here!

Gowen Thunder 2017 is the biggest air show to come to the Treasure Valley in over 20 years, and it's going to be an amazing experience.  It's happening this weekend at Gowen Field, and it's going to be something you don't want to miss.

Michelle in the Morning and I had the chance to fly the A10 Simulator at Gowen Field.  It was an incredible experience and you can check out or time in the "cockpit" in the video above.

When you're at the air show, you'll experience aerial acrobatics, ground shows, displays, and of course the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and Royal Canadian Snowbirds too.

In addition, the U.S. Army Jump Team, the Idaho National Guard combat capability, and Army and Air Guard helicopters and jets will be doing demonstrations.  It's going to be an amazing chance to see Bradley fighting vehicles and arms demonstrations too.

The air show itself is free and open to the public, but you can get VIP seating and experience upgrades too!

Michelle in the Morning has your VIP Gowen Thunder tickets Thursday morning at 8am.  If you have the LITE-FM Mobile App, you'll get a warning for the exact 15 minute window of when to win!

Hope we will see you at Gowen Thunder
