Hosted By:

Six women from the Misty Blues will show off their skills at this year’s show. Adorned in their signature pink and blue jump suits, the Misty’s are well-known for their skilled skydiving, fun personality and spending a lot of time meeting spectators – especially kids. These professional women hold 35 world records and have completed a record 40,000 combined jumps. The Misty Blues last performed in Dayton in 2012.
