Rhode Island Airshow 2016:
This past weekend June 11th & 12th, the Quonset State Airport hosted the Rhode Island Airshow sponsored by the National Guard Association of Rhode Island. Performing at the airshow were some of the best from around the country including: Mike Goulian, Rob Holland Air Show, Ace Maker Air Shows, Mark Murphy P51, Special Operations Parachute Team, Jack Links Screamin’ Sasquatch and the Shockwave Jet Truck. Also being showcased at the two day event was an F-18 Demo, C-47 Skytrain, A1E Skyraider, F4U Corsair and C-130J Super Hercules.
The airshow included many activities for all ages where the kids could enjoy a climbing wall, zip lines or even getting to sit in some of their favorite retired military aircraft on display. Many also got to see up close some of the National Guard’s military aircraft and vehicles currently in use today. It was a great event to grab a meal from one of the many on site vendors, sit back in your lawn chair and enjoy the airshow on a beautiful afternoon near the water at Quonset Point.T
Thank you to all who attended this event and for the support demonstrated for our military throughout the weekend activities. Also a big thanks to our sponsors that helped for this special event for the state of Rhode Island. We look forward to seeing the airshow come back again next year.
