DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) -- Officials say the U.S. Navy Blue Angels will return to Davenport skies as part of an air show over Mother's Day weekend in May.

The Quad-City Times reports the 69th Quad-City Air Show will feature the Blue Angels Demonstration Team as part of a two-day event at the Davenport Municipal Airport.

Air show officials also say that for the first time, visitors can see a white tiger up close as part of the Royal White Tiger Discovery Exhibit.

The show's president and founder says attendees can take pictures of the animals and watch them being fed by their handlers.

The exhibit also will feature educational programs that promote conservation issues involving white tigers.
