Wondering what the thunderous noises booming over Redlands were starting the afternoon of Friday, May 17?
On May 18 and 19, Hangar 24 charities hosted its eleventh annual Airfest at the Redlands Municipal Airport. This Airfest publicizes extreme pilots who execute daring stunts, like spinning in circles and free falling thousands of feet.
Sue Cook, Hangar 24 Charities Air Fest Coordinator sent notification to Redlands Unified School District in advance with information about the AirFest, including: “We have an exciting event planned with the USAF A-10 Warthog Jet Demo Team, USN F-18 Super Hornets, world class civilian performers and much more. Please visit the website http://www.hangar24airfest.com for the full line up of events. “
The event was available to all ages, with scheduled Air Show performers and live musicians throughout the weekend.
The audience was kept at the edge of their seats as they indulged in a variety of craft beers, aircraft displays and live music.
