Next year's edition of the Rhode Island National Guard Open House Air Show will be held May 20 and 21.

Organizers said the Canadian Forces Snowbirds will be the headline act.

The air show is held at Quonset.

A post on the air show Facebook page promised, "More exciting news to come!"

This year's headline act, the Thunderbirds, were grounded after a pilot safely ejected but crashed his plane following a flyover in Colorado.
