U.S. Air Force 75th anniversary to be featured during Field of Flight


The United States Air Force Air will celebrate its 75th anniversary during this year’s Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival.

The event, which runs from June 30 to July 4 at Battle Creek Executive Airport, will feature performances by the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, the U.S. Air Force F-35A Lightning II Demo Team and the Air National Guard Band of the Midwest.

“We’re glad the Thunderbirds are back for what will be a really historic Field of Flight this year,” Battle Creek Field of Flight Media Director Bretten Bailey said in a press release.

The United States Air Force Thunderbirds fly into Battle Creek in 2016.

It will be the first appearance of the Thunderbirds since 2016. The Thunderbirds were scheduled to fly in Battle Creek in 2020 but the event was canceled because of COVID-19. Performances are slated July 2-4. The Thunderbirds are based at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada.

Major Kristin “BEO” Wolfe will pilot the newest aircraft in the Air Force’s inventory — the F-35A Lightning II.
