Luke AFB will host “Luke Days 2014,” an open house and air show, March 15 and 16, 2014. The U.S. Air Force’s premier aerial demonstration team, the Thunderbirds, will headline the weekend’s activities with performances both days.
A static display of Luke’s newest aircraft, the F-35A Lightning II, should also be available for viewing.
Previous base open houses have averaged more than 100,000 spectators each day. There will be food, games and attractions for the whole family. The event is open to the public and admission is free.
