Thanks to our air show sponsors, pilots and crews, the County of San Bernardino, volunteers, vendors; and all the other groups and individuals too numerous to list who made the show a resounding success.

Thanks to our honored veterans and guests who spoke and attended. We thank our veterans for their service to the country and for sharing their experiences with us so that we might better appreciate the sacrifices our veterans have made and are still making for our nation.

And a special thank you to all the volunteers who worked so hard to make sure the show came off without a hitch. Your efforts helped make the show safe, successful, and best of all fun for our guests.
