DAYTON — It was a ride of a lifetime for Storm Center 7 Daybreak meteorologist Kirstie Zontini, who suited up Wednesday afternoon with the U.S. Navy Blue Angels.
The flight crew is in town for this weekend’s Vectren Dayton Air Show.
Zontini took off with the team at 4:30 p.m., and is now safely back on the ground after quite the ride on an F/A-18C Hornet aircraft.
The Blue Angels are making their first appearance at the Vectren Dayton Air Show since 2014.
The fastest speed the team reaches during its performances is about 700 mph.
News Center 7 will bring you the behind the scenes look at the team and Zontini’s flight throughout Wednesday.
