DAYTON — UPDATE @12:19 p.m.
The flag taken up by the Redline Circle of Cincinnati has dropped, and the Vectren Dayton Air Show is starting up.
Lead pilot of Redline Ken Rieder knew he was going to be a pilot almost his entire life.
He went to his first air show in Waynesville when he was 5 years old.

“My dad was driving up to Columbus for something. We saw it as we were driving by and I was excited, so he pulled in.”
At a young age, Rieder started building model planes, joined the Civil Air Patrol at 12 years old and eventually got his pilot’s license at age 21.
“From there on it was everything I could do to get flying,” Rieder said.
The Dayton Air Show is particular important to Rieder as the first large air show he had ever attended. He said he never imagined he’d be flying in the Dayton Air Show when he was younger.
Now he’s not only flying in the show, but he built the planes he and partner Ron Thocker are flying today. The team will be back later in the show.
UPDATE @11:50 a.m.
Flying acts will begin soon.
Watch live coverage of the acts here.
