Displays will include aircraft displays, R/C aircraft demonstrations and the Lauridsen Aviation Museum. In addition to the aircraft displays, the event will host the Arizona SciTech Festival, live entertainment, police and fire department demonstrations, and a kids zone.

As always, there will be loads of vintage and modern aircraft on display, including a demonstration of jets and other remote control aircraft on the runway. The Kids Zone will also be full of fun for the younger visitors, including a bounce house and other physical activities. While you’re out on the runway, enjoy food vendors and other live entertainment throughout the day!
