Today we attended the "THUNDER AND LIGHTNING SHOW OVER ARIZONA" at Davis Monthan AFB. This is also open to the public. We first attended in March of 2016. Shuttle busses take you to the show with the closest to the campground at the Med Center. Temps in the middle 70's with slight breeze. After escorting son Darin through the gate, we took the 930AM shuttle over with a return at 600PM. Thunderbirds were last to perform.
