LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- In just a few months, planes will be flying high over the Ohio River for Thunder Over Louisville.
Members of the Kentucky Derby Festival (KDF) offered a sneak peak Wednesday night at some of the planes that will be involved.
KDF President and CEO Matthew Gibson confirmed a CV-22 Osprey and the U.S. Army Golden Knights will be part of the airshow. There will also be a Wild Blue RV8 night time tribute to recognize first responders.
"This year is by far one of the strongest I’ve seen!" Gibson wrote.
So many exciting things to report! Demo Teams like the cv-22 Osprey and US Army Golden Knights and more, a super cool Wild Blue RV8 night time tribute show to recognize our valued First Responders.

Officials with KDF, the Kentucky Air National Guard and the production crew for Thunder Over Louisville head to Las Vegas every year to recruit acts for the airshow. Gibson shared images of the trip on his Twitter account.
Expect a full list to be unveiled after the new year at some point, officials said. The 2020 event is scheduled for Saturday, April 18. The airshow and fireworks display will be broadcast on WDRB.
