COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) - The famous Thunderbirds will not be performing at the upcoming Wings Over Columbus Air and Space Show, the Air Force announced Tuesday.
This cancelation is due to the recent death of pilot Major Stephen Del Bagno last week. He was killed when his aircraft crashed during a training mission at the Nevada Test and Training Range.
The Columbus event is scheduled for April 21-22 at the Columbus Air Force Base.
