As video online shows, the skies over Utah were dotted with military might on Monday as the Air Force launched 52 state-of-the-art F-35A Lightning II fighter jets from Hill Air Force Base. The 388th and 419th Fighter Wings conducted the exercise, with the 388th vice commander saying “We now have our full complement of aircraft and locally, we turn this into a goal of full war-fighting capability.”
I saw some people posting about F35s at Hill AFB….yeah there was something up a showcase of military power. https://t.co/7VbDriQxoa

Officials also say that the fighter jet’s showcase was coincidentally in time with the current tensions in the middle east and not in direct response with any current Iranian threats. Do you think the timing of this showcase is purely coincidental as our government shares some pretty harsh words with Iran’s government? Have you ever been to an airshow? What tips do you have for families attending an airshow?
