PHOENIX — The Thunder and Lightning Over Arizona Open House and Airshow has been rescheduled for November 6-7 due to COVID-19.

The bi-annual event was previously scheduled for April 24-25 at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base and is free to attend, according to a release by the U.S. Air Force.

“We felt it was prudent in light of the current COVID-19 conditions to reschedule. We remain committed to our duty to keep our Airmen, families and neighbors in Tucson safe from the threat of contracting COVID-19,” Col. Joseph Turnham, 355th Wing commander, said.

Participants in the airshow include the U.S. Air Force Air Demonstration Squadron, the Thunderbirds and the A-10 Thunderbolt II Demonstration Team.

The show provides an opportunity to learn about Air Force capabilities to execute rescue and attack missions.

“Our planning continues, and we will provide updates on any future scheduling changes or cancellations should they be necessary,” Captain Elias Small, 355th Wing chief of public affairs, said.
