The Great State of Maine Air Show is back this weekend in Brunswick.

And we know many people who would just never miss it. Only an hour and 40 minutes from Bangor (See map below) Great State of Maine Air Show is a thrill a minute.

The show features the U.S Navy Blue Angels at the top of the list promising an adrenaline rushing performance.

Other performers on the docket include:

  • It’s “Fat Albert”, a U.S. Marine Corps C-130 Hercules airlifter. One airplane in the Blue Angels fleet gets its own billing, and it isn’t one of the supersonic Hornet jets.
