Welcome to MacDill and Air Fest 2005

by Col. Margaret H. Woodward

On behalf of the men and women of MacDill Air Force Base, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Air Fest 2005. It is a great honor and privilege for us to provide you the opportunity to witness first-hand the capabilities of your armed forces.

As you view the exhibits and watch the spectacular aerial demonstrations overhead, you will have an opportunity to meet the servicemembers who have dedicated themselves to defending our country and preserving our freedoms. Please take a few minutes and talk to them, find out who they are and what they do in the Air Force, Navy, Army, Coast Guard and Marines. I'm sure you'll be as proud and impressed with them as I am.

Throughout the day you will see a wide variety of aircraft demonstrations. This year's Air Fest features the United States Air Force Thunderbirds precision flight demonstration team. The team is the Air Force's premier demonstration team and has been performing since 1953. We are confident you will be amazed with this year's program.

The MacDill Air Fest would not be possible without the continued support of the greater Tampa Bay community. It is our outstanding relationship that makes events like this such a remarkable success. We are proud to be part of this great community.

Thank you for attending Air Fest 2005. We hope you have an enjoyable and memorable day as you watch your armed forces in action. Enjoy the show!
