The show generates $1.4 million for the city. In the past, a portion of the proceeds benefited Stars and Stripes Honor Flight, an opportunity veteran Chuck Franzke had. He was a Navy Pilot in World War II.
"I flew the largest single engine plane in the world at that time and they put it on the smallest carrier," explained Chuck Franzke, World War II Veteran.
The 93-year-old met the Blue Angels at the Air Show two year ago. Franzke says it's an act everyone needs see.
"It's such an attraction because there's such a speed involved and the acrobatics and so on and it's a great show," said Franzke.
Milwaukee's Air and Water Show is set for July 15 and 16. Organizers say Blue Angels will headline the 2017 show.
