These snow birds are different from what Arizonans usually call “snow birds.” Instead of people (usually retirees) who come from cold climates to enjoy Arizona’s mild, sunny winter weather, these snowbirds are pilots who perform precision feats in the air. They are similar to Blue Angels (the U.S. Navy’s flight demonstration team).
They have a small museum at the airport that gives visitors information about Douglas’s history and fascination with airplanes and flying. I’ll bet it will be open during the air show for aviation enthusiasts who want to explore the aviation connection in Cochise County a bit more.
I’ve recently come across a blog that shows the passion aviators have for their planes. Ryan Keough writes it. Check out his post!
If you go to the show, tell us about it. Just leave a comment below.
