After a four-year absence due to budget constraints, Skyfest returned to Fairchild Air Force Base this weekend. Thousands came out to see many different military aircraft, including a B-1B bomber, F-15E, V-22 Osprey and many others, along with demonstrations by the Army’s Golden Knights and the Air Force's Thunderbirds.
