TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Everyone is invited to attend Davis-Monthan's open house happening this weekend.

D-M is opening its doors for this free event to showcase its military air power and to thank the community for its continuous support.

Visitors can expect to see exciting aerial demonstrations, numerous static displays, and an inspiring performance by the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. 

Beginning at 9 a.m. air show visitors may enter through either the Swan or Craycroft gates on both Saturday and Sunday.

Aerial demonstrations will start at 11 a.m., with the Thunderbirds performing at 2 p.m. when inbound traffic will be stopped during the performance.

There are 14 aerial demonstrations scheduled - they include B-25 and P-51 flybys, a demo by the Air Force Academy Wings of Blue Parachute Team, the Red Bull Helicopter and a performance by Tucson's own Desert Lighting Team.
