Luke Air Force Base is flying high this weekend.  Luke is celebrating “75 years of air power” with death-defying aerial acts by several elite aerial teams,  The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and a chance to meet the “World’s Greatest F-35 and F-16 pilots!”

The Thunderbirds precision demonstration team will perform legendary aerial formations in the F-16C Fighting Falcon and two F-16D twin-seat trainers.  The team will also take to the skies in other vintage and specialty aircraft.  The U.S. Army Golden Knights Parachute Team is hurling toward the Earth in precise aerial fashion.  The Alabama Boys will provide comic relief with their air-based antics.

General admission is free. VIP tickets are available. Tickets include exclusive access to the VIP tent, where you can watch aerial demonstrations from a comfortable venue, private restrooms, food, drinks throughout the day and a parking pass for the VIP parking area.
