Thunder and Lightning Over Arizona brings fun and flight to Tucson Skies

The USAF Thunderbirds perform over Davis-Monthan April 13 in preparation for the Thunder and Lightning Over Arizona Open House.

More than 130,000 people converged on Davis-Monthan AFB April 14 and 15 to watch a spectacular display of aeronautic stunts and tour one-of-kind static displays.

Although the weather was overcast and unseasonably chilly, locals came out in droves to the biannual Open House.  “As always, the D-M personnel put on an amazing event,” said Reed Walker, a local retiree. “I’ve been attending the air show at Davis-Monthan for many years and I’m always impressed with the line-up. I just wish they were able to do this every year instead of every other year.”

Headlining the open house was the always impressive USAF Thunderbirds. “I know its cliché, but the Thunderbirds are always my favorite,” said Walker.

Most of the festivities went off without a hitch. The only major disruption was a sonic boom that occurred during a practice session April 13, a day before the Open House officially opened. The base Legal Office is taking care of the claims procedures for damages associated with the sonic boom.
