Four jets from the Thunderbirtd flying team fly in close formation Saturday. Base officials estimate more than 100,000 visitors will attend Tinker Air Force Base's annual Star Spangled Salute Air Show and Open House this Saturday and Sunday, June 21 and 22, 2014. The Air Force Thunderbirds, a military precision flying team, thrilled spectators with their close formations and daredevil-type flying Saturday afternoon. Organizers say the public will have an opportunity to view the largest collection of static displays in the history of the event. Hundreds stood in long lines in hot and humid conditions to walk through the E-3 Sentry on Saturday. Visitors also were able to get close looks at other military aircraft, including the B-1B Lancer, B-52 Stratofortress, C-17 Globemaster, CV-22 Osprey, E-6B Mercury, KC-135 Stratotanker. The event continues on Sunday, with aerial acts starting at noon.
