DULUTH, MN. (Northern News Now) - The Duluth Airshow is hosting a pre-party to gear up for the big show.

The Airshow is partnering with Downtown Duluth’s “Movies in the Park” to host “Aviators & Autographs.”

Before Minnesota’s largest airshow, the public is invited to attend the free event on Friday, July 14.

Guests will be able to participate in the festivities with meet-and-greet opportunities with airshow performers including members of the United States Navy Blue Angels.

Blue Angel #3 Lieutenant Amanda Lee will also be in attendance as she makes history as the first female demonstration pilot to ever fly with the world-renowned Blue Angels.

Lee is originally from Mounds View, MN, and lived in Duluth while attending UMD prior to joining the US Navy.

There will also be a small program that features introductions of all the air show performers in attendance.

In addition, the public will have a chance to meet and take selfies and get autographs with many of the air show performers which also includes “Maverick” who is a Tom Cruise impersonator from San Diego, California flying in for the weekend.

The fun will conclude with the screening of “Top Gun: Maverick” which is part of the “Movie in the Park” lineup.
