BRUNSWICK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The U.S. Navy's famous demonstration squadron is returning to Maine.

The Blue Angels will be performing at the Great State of Maine air show on August 26 and 27 of 2017.

The Blue Angels are known for their precision flying, and have performed in Brunswick several times.

Lieutenants Brandon Hempler and Dave Steppe came to Brunswick Thursday in advance of the air show to prepare, and also to do some community outreach, something they say is very important to the Blue Angels team.

Both the officers say they are honored to be a part of this summer's performance.
