DAYTON (AP) -- Organizers say the newest fighter aircraft for the U.S. Air Force will fly in formation with a WWII fighter plane during the Vectren Dayton Air Show in Ohio this summer.

It's a pairing known as a Heritage Flight. Organizers say the F-35 was part of the event last year, too, but only as an exhibit on the ground.

The Air Force Thunderbirds are slated to headline the event, which is scheduled for June 24-25.
