There was quite a variety of static aircraft on display at the Joint Base Lewis McChord – JBLM Airshow & Warrior Expo 2016 (August 27th-28th, 2016 – I went on the Saturday). Non flying aircraft and helicopters were present from the USAF, US Army (more on them in my next post), Royal Canadian Air Force and Civil Air Patrol including combat aircraft, trainers, transports and aerial refuelling tankers. There was something for everyone but as per usual with modern budgetary constraints there could always have been more fighters and bombers!
There were also various warbirds and historic aircraft at the other end of the airfield. Technically they were not static displays as a number of them flew during the day and were separated from the crowd by a security fence but you could still get a reasonable look at them!
All in all and enjoyable day wandering around exploring all of these aircraft up close. In my next post I will share some photos of the US Army helicopters, vehicles and equipment that was part of the Warrior Expo.
