Rockford discontinued its air show sometime in the 1990s, but Thursday the Greater Rockford Airport Board voted unanimously to hold a show August 5 through 7.
Rudy Malnati directs the annual Chicago Air and Water Show on the city's lakefront, and he'll be heading up Rockford's show.
Malnati says Rockford's airport is a great location for such an event and the show will include military planes, flying acts and pyrotechnics.
