The Edwards Air Force Base Open House was held the weekend of October 25-26. During the two-day event, visitors saw new and unique aircraft in the Air Force inventory, and some of the best aerial demonstration pilots and teams performing today. The various demonstrations included Air Force aircraft such as the F/A-22, F-117, F-16, KC-135, C-17, B-1, which set 52 official world records, B-2, as well as NASA aircraft among others. This was also a once-a-year opportunity for taxpayers to see the kind of equipment they buy for the Air Force, and the abilities of the people who test, fly and maintain this equipment.
The static display aircraft were arrayed on the flightline Friday afternoon as the United States Air Force Thunderbirds arrived. Here is just a small selection of the aircraft that were displayed at the Open House:
Mitsubishi A6M Zero, NX712Z
747-Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, N905NA
