Air show returns for 2014

The U.S. Navy Blue Angels

The Rhode Island National Guard said Thursday that the 2014 Open House and Air Show will be held the weekend of May 17-18.

Last year's air show was canceled as a result of federal budget cuts called sequestration.

A news release from the National Guard said the 2014 show will be headlined by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels and will feature the U.S. Army Special Operations Command Jump Team, Sean D. Tucker, Rob Holland and other performers.

The Open House and Air Show is held at Quonset Air National Guard Base in North Kingstown.
