Today the air show is running a high show. On Saturday, only a few of the earlier acts couldn’t perform at a high level because of lower clouds. Benzing learned to fly at a young age and has been flying for over 30 years. The Californian also has a Ph.D. in Chemistry.

The flag taken up by the Redline Circle of Cincinnati has dropped, and the Vectren Dayton Air Show is starting up.

“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.

HARRISON TWP. — The family of Amber Hoover, who was found with multiple stab wounds behind a Harrison Twp. home last week, are offering a reward for anyone with information on the whereabouts of the guest book that is missing from her funeral.
Hoover, 42, was found stabbed behind a residence on Embury Park Road on June 10, and was pronounced dead at Grandview Medical Center. The coroner's office ruled the incident a homicide and said Hoover died of multiple stab wounds.
Hoover’s mother and daughter, who are still mourning the loss, are now focused on finding the missing guest book.
“We absolutely don’t care who has it or why you have it”, said Kelsey Jewett, Hoover’s daughter. “If you have it, we just want it back”.
They are not accusing anyone of stealing the book and are aware it could have simply been misplaced, as there were plenty of visitors at Hoover’s funeral last week.
“That’s our one last memory to speak of Amber”, said Theresa Jones, Hoover’s mother.
According to a Montgomery County Sheriff's incident report, deputies found two witnesses and a possible suspect when her body was found.
