Col. Trace Thomas, 120th commander, told City Commissioners in June 2021 that the Thunderbirds were scheduled, and the local air show has been on their calendar for months, as was reported by The Electric last summer.

The open house event will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Montana Air National Guard and the Air Force.
