Nathan, Kyle and Bradley Warda are excited to see the jets arrive at Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport.

Seven-year-old Nathan wants to see the outhouse jet (part of the Speed for Hire lineup) and the Canadian Snowbirds. He says the Snowbirds are new to him. The Snowbirds are actually new to AirFEST and haven't been in the region since 1994. They will perform both Saturday and Sunday.

Three-year-old Bradley Warda says he wants to see the jets shoot fire. Nathan translates, saying Bradley's talking about the exhaust from the jets. Five-year-old Kyle says he could hear the jets fly by when he was at school. The three came down Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport Thursday to see the jets arrive.

AirFEST Executive Director Julia Dacy says the Snowbirds will bring enthusiasts from a three-hour radius to the air show.
