This year’s Skyfest postponed, base says

Fairchild Air Force Base is canceling Skyfest, originally planned for September, but plans to hold the air show sometime in 2013, the base announced this morning.

Budget constraints and “conflicts with other regional air shows” were behind the decision, according to a news release.

Skyfest was originally scheduled to be held Sept. 22 and 23.

Fairchild plans to hold Skyfest next year “on a date to be determined.”

The popular bi-annual air show typically draws up to 100,000 people a day to see aircraft on the ground as well as aerial demonstrations.
