The air show Gowen Thunder 2017 will take over Gowen Field Saturday and Sunday.
The show, the first in decades, will feature the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and their Canadian counterparts, the Royal Canadian Snowbirds. It is scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day.
Some Treasure Valley residents wondered if the rumble they heard in the sky Thursday afternoon was one or more F-35s that will be at the show.
A Boise airport spokesman said he did not know if the F-35s arrived Thursday.
Maj. Christopher Borders, spokesman for the Idaho National Guard, did not immediately respond to a request for information.
