"The 2019 Thunder and Lightning Over Arizona Air Show promises to be a weekend packed with heart-pounding air performances and family-friendly activities. This is your chance to get up close and personal with the aircraft and pilots!"
Join the CESL Activities Team on Saturday, March 23rd as we experience this thriling event on the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson.
