OCEAN CITY, Md. - Another first is coming to the OC Air Show next year.

Air Show officials say it will host the Breitling Jet Team in 2015, the second jet team to be announced in the 105 performer line up. The Breitling Jet Team is a seven aircraft European jet demonstration team.

The Team, based in Dijon, France, will travel to the United States in the spring for its first ever American tour. Their tour schedule was announced Tuesday at the International Council of Air Shows Convention in Las Vegas. OC Air Show officials say Ocean City is one of only 18 shows where the Team will perform in 2015.

"The 2015 event will be our best show yet" said Bryan Lilley, President of the OC Air Show.

"With the inaugural performance of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels and the Breitling Jet Team we expect to have record crowds next year, and we're only getting started with the performer line up," Lilley added.

This will be the second time in the show's history that it's hosted two jet teams in the same year, and the first time the show will host an international jet demonstration team. The U.S. Navy Blue Angels will headline the show as usual.

The show runs from June 13-14 in Ocean City. The Air Show center will be located on 16th Street. Air Show officials say premium viewing tickets including the Flight Line Clubhouse and the VIP Penthouse are on sale now.

According to the Air Show website, the Flight Line VIP Clubhouse only allows 300 people to enjoy the VIP experience which is right in front of the parachute landing zone. Those who purchase those tickets will be able to meet pilots and jumpers. A reserved VIP parking pass near Show Center is included with each Clubhouse purchase.
