Air Power Day

A few weeks ago, Osan Air Base celebrated Air Power Day 2011.  This is an annual two-day air show featuring American and Korean aerial performances, military demonstrations, and aircraft and equipment displays.  The base is open to the public, giving the locals a chance to come onto base and enjoy the festivities and food.  There were over 50,000 visitors at the show this year.

"The engine is the heart of an airplane,
but the pilot is its soul."
