Thunder Birds Air Show
When did a little air crash ever stop the Thunderbirds? A pilot survived a crash June 2 during a flyover at an Air Force Academy graduation in Colorado. But after only two weeks on the ground, the Air Force Thunderbirds are back in the sky flying wingtip to wingtip over northern Utah.
Look to the skies for the Warriors Over the Wasatch Air Show, an hour-long demonstration combining years of training and experience with an attitude of excellence to showcase what the Air Force is all about. Solo pilots integrate their own loud and proud routine, exhibiting some of the maximum capabilities of the F-16 Fighting Falcon—the Air Force's premier multi-role fighter jet. Hill Air Force Base, West Gate (access from 650 North in Clearfield or I-15 Exit 335) or Roy Gate (access from 5600 South in Roy or I-15 Exit 338), 801-777-5201, Saturday, June 25, 9 a.m.-Sunday June 26, 5 p.m., free and open to public, Hill.AF.mil/WarriorsOverTheWasatch
