DULUTH -- Tora, Tora, Tora -- a living history museum -- will recreate the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor at the Duluth Air Show this July for the first time.

Air Show president Ryan Kern announced dates and acts for the 2010 Air and Aviation Expo Friday.

July 17-18 is the chosen weekend for the show, held at the Duluth International Airport. Returning this year are the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, who last appeared in 2006.

"This will mark the first time the Air Force Thunderbirds will actually be front and center at the air show," Kern said.

"They'll do their entire show right in front of the crowd, and we're very excited about that."

The theme of the 2010 air show is "Generations," meant to salute veterans who served in World War II and beyond. Tora, Tora, Tora is a recreation by the Commemorative Air Force of Midland, Texas, and is one of the most sought-after civilian acts in the world, Kern said, usually booked at least five years in advance.

The group is coming to Duluth because of scheduling changes on its end. The reenactment includes explosions and pyrotechnics and is intended as a memorial to those who lost their lives during the attack.

Tickets for the air show are on sale now, three months earlier than past years.

Kern said parking and transportation plans have been reworked to help with traffic flow.

The Duluth News Tribune and the Herald are Forum Communications Co. newspapers.
