HANOVER TWP., Pa. -

The Lehigh Valley International Airport has announced the first act for its first air show in 15 years.

The Misty Blues All Woman Skydiving Team will be descending on the Lehigh Valley Air Show from 4,000 feet in the sky.

The team has been participating in airshows since the 1980s, displaying parachuting talents that make them some of the most skilled skydivers in the world.

The airport authority is resurrecting the air show in an effort to lure people back to the financially struggling airport.

Authority officials anticipate the show will generate more a profit of more than $30,000 for the airport.

The last time LVIA hosted an air show was 1997. This year's event will run Aug. 24 and 25.
