The Flying Eye Hospital was a featured aircraft on display at the 2018 Vectren Dayton Air Show. The MD-10 joined 26 other aircraft at the show and was open for public tours on Saturday and Sunday.

Over 8,000 people toured the Flying Eye Hospital with doctors, pilots and staff members available for questions.

What Orbis does is incredible. The mission is important and the plane is unlike anything I've ever seen. It doesn't feel like you're on an airplane!

Daily air shows featured aircraft performances of all types including the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, Sean D Tucker and the explosive Tora, Tora, Tora!

A big thank you to the volunteers, pilots, doctors and staff who joined us at the air show and made it a huge success! Because of your help, we were able to share our cause with a new audience and create awareness around our mission to treat and prevent avoidable blindness.
