Guam – Rainy weather didn’t stop island residents from taking the opportunity to see air demonstrations at the Andersen Air Force Base Open House on Saturday.
The Pacific Forces F-16 flying team headlined the event and there were also demonstrations from the F-22 and B-52 flying teams. Every unit from Andersen’s 36th Wing participated in the open house along with representatives from the U.S. Navy, Coast Guard and the Marine Corps.
“People were able to see how we build bombs here… from being build all the way to being loaded on the aircraft” Open House Director Major Joe Little said of the ground demonstrations that were offered. “Our security forces also had their military working dogs out here doing demonstrations every hour as well.”
The last time Andersen Air Force Base held an open house was in 2009.
