Skyfest 2014

When: Saturdays, Sundays. Continues through June 1 2014

If you’re an Air Force buff who can rattle off facts at any sight of an aircraft, you’ll be in good company at SkyFest. But even if you don’t know an F-16 from a KC-135, the appeal is largely the same: cool planes doing cool stuff, up close and loud. The free air show returns to Fairchild Air Force Base for the first time in four years, with the Thunderbirds, Golden Knights parachute team and many other acts. Bring earplugs, sunscreen and lawn chairs; leave all food, pets and weapons at home.
