DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — The Vectren Dayton Air Show is still a few days away but for one teen the excitement has already started.

Centerville sophomore Alberta Dempsey got to ride along with Sean D. Tucker, one of the air show’s major attractions.

Alberta won an essay contest for the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Young Eagles program. The group’s goal is to connect young people with aviation and there’s no better way to do that than to see what it’s like to fly.

Afterward Alberta told 2 NEWS that she enjoyed her ride, calling it “amazing”.

You can catch Tucker’s performances Saturday and Sunday at the air show.
