Family Day...

On the 3 rd of March, the 161st Air Refueling Wing had their family appreciation day at the base. It is the one day of the year that they make the families really know how much their support means to the airmen. They had lots of activities for the families, a rock wall, three different bounce houses, pony rides, face painting, movies, a dunk tank, and a lot more.

The fire department was out handing out information and letting the kids aim the fire hose. They had static displays from the Phoenix Police department with a S.W.A.T. vehicle and a helicopter.

The Arizona Guard had two different tanker aircraft on display, a KC-135E model and a newer KC-135R model that the 161st now flies. Not to be out done, the 162st from Tucson brought up a F-16 for everyone to see.

Along with all that, we had the Invader displayed in the main area. It was a fun day for all!

With the winding down of the day, the F-16 departed for Tucson, but no before making a vertical departure and disappearing into the sky.
