Fairchild Air Force Base
Fairchild's SkyFest is back Summer 2010! In appreciation for the outstanding support that the base has received from its local community, Fairchild will once again host one of the biggest and most talked about events in the Inland Northwest.
In 2008 more than 220,000 people attended SkyFest--Fairchild's largest crowd ever. Local community members had the opportunity to tour a wide array of military aircraft and watch aerial demonstrators, representing nearly every branch of the military, soar through the skies.
Skyfest 2010 scheduled for 24-25 July. The two-day show is free and open to the public and will feature Air Force aviation at its best with a demonstration by the U.S. Air Force Flight Demonstration Team, the Thunderbirds.
The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds present precision aerial maneuvers to exhibit the capabilities of modern high-performance aircraft and the high degree of professional skill required to operate those aircraft. You won't want to miss this rare opportunity to experience the capabilities of the world-renowned Thunderbirds.
The air show is one of the few times that the gates of the base are open to the public, offering a unique opportunity for members of the community to see up close USAF aircraft on display, talk to Air Force personnel and view the artistic and technical abilities of some of the world's best aerobatic and demonstration pilots.
More information on the Thunderbirds can be found on their Web site http://thunderbirds.airforce.com/. For more information on Skyfest 2010, contact the 92nd Air Refueling Wing Pubic Affairs Office at (509) 247-5705.
