VIDEO: The excitement is in the air over in Vidalia as they get ready for the city’s annual Onion Festival that kicks off Thursday. One of the event’s main attractions is the air show featuring the United States Navy Blue Angels. While the Blue Angels are in town, some people who were nominated and selected will have the chance to fly with them. Wednesday, a volunteer firefighter from Lyons got the opportunity of a lifetime. While the team is in town, they offer rides in their Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jet and the C-130 named “Fat Albert” before their air shows this weekend. It’s a once-in-a lifetime experience to fly with a military aerobatic team, like them. Taking the first influencer ride, Wednesday, is Casey Poole. Poole is a volunteer firefighter with the Lyons Fire Department.
