2015 Grand Junction Air Show to Feature USAF Thunderbirds
The USAF Thunderbirds Aerial Demonstration Team will highlight the 2015 Grand Junction Air Show at Grand Junction Regional Airport.
The 2015 Grand Junction Air Show will be Saturday October 10 and Sunday October 11, featuring a variety of aerial performers, with the Thunderbirds headlining shows on both days. Other military and non-military aircraft will be featured at this year's show, with more acts being announce at a later date.
It's been three years since the last Grand Junction air show, and thirteen years since the Thunderbirds last appeared in Grand Junction.
Clay Tufly, president of Grand Junction Air Show, said "there will be many new acts at this show along with favorite military performers and static displays."
You'll notice this ear's show is just two days instead of the typical three-day event. Tickets for the event will be available in the near future.
USAF Major Scott Petz flew his F-16 into Grand Junction Regional Airport for today's announcement. With more than 1800 hours as an Air Force pilot, and 208 combat hours, he's in his first season with the Thunderbirds. Petz talked to us about what it's like to fly in formation 18 inches apart, check out the video above for the whole interview.
