Thunderbirds at Fairchild next July

The Air Force’s top aerial act, the Thunderbirds, will perform at Fairchild Air Force Base next July.

Fairchild announced today the Thunderbirds put the Skyfest 2010 event on their schedule, which was released yesterday at a convention in Las Vegas.

Maj. Angela Oconnell, a base spokeswoman, said this may be the earliest an announcement of an upcoming Skyfest has ever been made.

“We found out and we thought we’d put it on everybody’s calendar,” Oconnell said late this morning. Skyfest will be July 24 and 25.




The major aerial demonstration act schedules were released yesterday at the International Council of Air Shows convention, Oconnell said. Fairchild appeared on the Thunderbirds schedule and the base announced the show today, taking the extra time “to make double and triple sure”.

The Thunderbirds last appeared at Fairchild in 2006. The Navy’s Blue Angels performed in 2008.
