ST. CLOUD - Two pilots with the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels flew into town today (Wednesday) in advance of next year's air show.

Lieutenant Commander Michael Cheng says it's a routine stop, to make sure the air show committee is ready for their performance next year.

Cheng says, while the eight pilots that make-up the Blue Angels team get a lot of the credit, they have a whole team behind them.

Cheng says the Blue Angels are scheduled to do 33 shows all over North America next year.

The 2013 St. Cloud Air Show is scheduled for July 20th and 21st.  The show is a fundraiser for the Central Minnesota Council Boy Scouts.

The Blue Angels were also a part of the air show in St. Cloud in 2010.
