Luke Days at Luke Air Force Base is here and free to the public

Great event to take the family.

GOODYEAR, Ariz. – If you want to see some amazing twirls and flips by planes in the skies, check out Luke Days on Saturday and Sunday at Luke Air Force Base.

The event is free and open to the public.

“We’re really delighted to bring you the Jack Links aerobatic team here to Luke Air Force Base,” said professional pilot and trickster in the sky John Klatt.

Klatt is a retired F-16 pilot Lieutenant Colonel. For 15 years he defended the nation in the skies.

Now, he shares his gifts and talents to turn, spiral and nosedive with crows across the world.

“[I] really enjoy the passion for flight -- for aviation -- I’ve been given a really awesome opportunity to be a part of the Jack Links family and have this opportunity to share their plane with you,” said Klatt.

Klatt feeds his wild side in the show and is spectacular to watch as he does his adrenaline rushing stunts.

”You definitely pay attention,” he said, “I mean airshow flying, if you don’t pay attention can be dangerous, but all of these people in this hanger are professionals. We all mitigate all of our risk and safety is above all.”
