VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - The GEICO Skytypers attached a GoPro camera to one of their aircrafts, showing a unique view of the opening day of the 2016 Oceana Air Show.

The team’s six vintage SNJ training aircraft flew over air show crowds in a low-level precision-flying demonstration honoring World War II service members. The routine included combat tactics and maneuvers that helped control the skies during World War II and the Korean Conflict.

The GEICO Skytypers are based in Farmingdale, New York and travel with the pilots to every air show.

The annual air show occurs over three days every year in September and draws in more than 280,000 visitors from 25 states and 12 countries.

The show will feature performances from the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, the GEICO Skytypers, the Black Daggers U.S. Army Parachute Team, and multiple other pilots and performers.
