355th Fighter Wing Public Affairs

More than 200,000 people are expected to attend the “Thunder and Lightning over Arizona” Air Show and Open House April 12 and 13. The event is open to the public and admission is free.

It is two days of nonstop entertainment, but a few tips can help make the experience more pleasurable for guests.

Traffic in the areas surrounding Davis-Monthan Air Force Base is expected to be heavy. Golflinks Road will be closed from the Swan gate to the Craycroft gate.

During the open house the 355th Security Forces Squadron and Tucson Police Department would like to minimize traffic congestion and provide spectators and D-M personnel quick access to the base and parking areas. To help make this happen please be aware that all spectators coming to the show will have to pass through a security checkpoint prior to entering the base. Guests are asked to have all purses and other allowable bags open for search at the checkpoints.

· Personal carts or wheechairs for physically challenged visitors

· Diaper bags for small children

· Small women’s purses

· Strollers for small children

· Official service dogs

For those who prefer not to carry their own chairs, rental chairs will be available for the day at $5 each.
