AIR FORCE ACADEMY – Starting Friday, people in Colorado Springs should keep an eye to the sky for Air Force aircraft flying over the north side of the city.

Starting around noon Friday, a CV-22 Osprey, F-16 Fighting Falcon, A-10 Thunderbolt II, F-35 Lightning II and F-22 Raptor will act out how air resources are used in modern conflicts. The display will occur above the Academy’s Terrazzo, near the Air Force Academy chapel.

A B-1 Lancer, F-35 LightningII and the UH-1 Huey will fly over Falcon stadium before kickoff against Navy a little before 1:30 p.m. Saturday.

People driving by the Air Force Academy on I-25 should not stop to watch the demonstration, and people living near the Academy should expect more air traffic and noise in the area.
