Hot on the heels of another successful Air Force Appreciation Day, Mountain Home Air Force Base will host a USAF 60th Anniversarybirthday bash honoring (oddly enough) the United States Air Force.

MHAFB will be open its gates to the public at noon on Saturday, September 14th and a F15 flyby at 1:30 will officially open the festivities.  Members of the A10 West Coast Demonstration Team will be joined by a P51 Mustang, F86 Sabrejet and C130 Hercules for a heritage flight at 3:30 PM. 

Other activities will include Security Police working dog demonstrations, munitions loads and the base fire department's "wall of water" display.  In addition, each squadron will host a unit display to familiarize the public with the unit mission. 

Although not intended as a full-blown air show (Gunfighter Skies is scheduled to return in 2008), this a great opportunity to honor the United States Air Force and all it's members and families.
