With a planned celebration that offers something for everyone, and as it is a birthday party for the men and women in blues, the party will kick off with one of the most comprehensive displays of Air Force technology and advanced military defense systems ever shared at a public demonstration.

The Air Force is rolling it out with more than 22,000 square feet of display and will have the USAF Honor Guard Drill team, the USAF Galaxy Rock Band and the USAF Marching Band on site to entertain.

The Air Force is welcoming guests for various hands on challenges including flying an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), and flying a simulated mission aboard the F-22 Rapid Strike.
