Times have been tough, economically, and even the Military is feeling it. This weekend may be the only time for you to see the new F-22 Raptor fighter jet perform some of what makes it the most feared fighter in the world.
This weekend in Broomfield, just outside Denver, is the annual Rocky Mountain Air Show. Performances will be held that will include everything from replicas of the first form of aircraft to the F-22, to the launch of the Stars and Stripes 17ft Rocket. Other performances will include: Rocky Mountain Renegades; Pyro the Jet Truck; Trojan Phlyers; and Kirby Chambliss, a five-time U.S. National Aerobatic Champion and two-time Red Bull Air Race World Champion; hang glider Dan Buchanan; and a morning ascent by the Rocky Mountain Balloon Fest. Hang glider Dan Buchanan will be performing a night time pyrotechnic show for the fans as well, on his hang glider.
Once you have seen enough of the air show, take a walk around the grounds and see hundreds of other aircraft from WW1, WW2 and Iraq and Afghanistan. Different aircraft from our civil aviation will be on display as well and of course pilots will be available for questions or to just tell their infamous bar stories to you.
Don't miss this event, and expect to be there all day to enjoy it all. Come early, stay late.
