Thousands Look Up on First Day of Air Show at Offutt

By Justin Pazera. CREATED Jul 19, 2014

Offutt AFB -- There was a time when Offutt Air Force Base didn't know if the show would return. Unlike other bases across the country, it was able to host the show this year and the people showed up in large numbers.

It's a show like nothing else on earth, mainly because it's in the sky. The Defenders of Freedom Air Show brought out the largest crowd to Offutt in years. Last year's sequestration forced the base to cancel the annual air show. This year, the show is back on. This year's show cost about $250,000 to host. Offutt says it's too early to say if the show will be back next year.
