Hangar 24 Airfest

I had the opportunity to be a ground marshaller for the 1st annual Hangar 24 Airfest in Lake Havasu City. To make the event such a great success in only its first year required the community to all participate and come out. I don’t think anyone regretted buying tickets, as it was an amazing show and a great turnout!

About 6,000 spectators came out to watch the show! This was my view of the crowd from the flightline.

Professional aerobatic pilots traveled from afar to perform. Vicky Benzing, Kent Pietsch, and Jon Melby were among the stars of the show. In addition, military aircraft were part of the show including a two-ship T-38 fly by, a Blackhawk flyby, and static displays including a F-18, CV-22, and T-6.

A big thanks goes out to the volunteers who made this possible, along with the pilots, Hangar 24, and, of course, the community. I’m already looking forward to next year!
