Featured event: Luke Days 2018: The Future of Airpower

The Luke Days 2018 airshow will give civilians an exceptional opportunity to witness the Future of Airpower while watching the U.S. Navy Blue Angels.

While Luke AFB will always hold a prominent place in military history based on past achievements, its role in the future of airpower is not to be underestimated. Given the base’s reputation as the “Home of the Fighter Pilot,” it may not come as a surprise that Luke AFB is a primary training site for the F-35 program. Additionally, for the first time in 26 years, the U.S. Navy Blue Angels aerial demonstration team takes to Luke Air Force Base. Enjoy the excitement of numerous private and military aerial performers, including some of the most elite aviators in the world.

Whether you are a fan of old warbirds or the cutting-edge technology and innovation of the modern Air Force, there will be something for everyone at Luke Days.

For additional information, visit the Airshow USA website.
