The 2016 JBLM Air Show & Warrior Expo is a "GO" for August 27-28 at McChord Field. The all-day event will feature the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds as the marquee act, along with the U.S. Army's "Golden Knights."

"After a four-year hiatus, we're extremely pleased to bring this magnificent event back to the South Sound," said Col. Daniel S. Morgan, JBLM Garrison Commander. "We're thrilled to have the Thunderbirds and the Golden Knights here again, just as they were in 2012," Morgan added.

The 2016 JBLM Air Show & Warrior Expo is more than an air show.  In addition to the Thunderbirds and Golden Knights, hundreds of JBLM soldiers and airmen will be on hand with airframes and vehicles from JBLM as part of dozens of ground displays. This will showcase the equipment our airmen and soldiers use right here at the base every day, and it's our way to thank the people around the Puget Sound area for their support of servicemembers and military families. In most cases, people will be able to go inside the planes, helicopters and vehicles on display, and speak directly with the crews who operate them.

The 2016 JBLM Air Show & Warrior Expo is free and open to the general public.

More information about the 2016 JBLM Air Show & Warrior Expo will be available in the coming months through news releases and social media.
