Maxwell Postpones 2008 Air show, Open House

MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE, Ala. - The Maxwell-Gunter Air Show and Open House that was being looked at for spring 2008 has been rescheduled for the spring of 2009.

A combination of factors forced base officials to make the difficult decision to postpone the air show, said the 42nd Air Base Wing commander at Maxwell.

"While we were eager to welcome our communities' partners in the River Region to Maxwell," said Col. Paul McGillicuddy, "factors such as preparing for a major readiness inspection in the fall and planning for and hosting a first-ever Cyberspace Symposium in the spring, while still preparing and deploying base members at a high operations tempo to support the war on terrorism, all led to the decision to postpone the air show."

The bi-annual two-day air show, highlighting the exciting missions of the Air Force, usually draws more than 50,000 visitors to Maxwell.

"We truly appreciate the support we receive every day from the River Region," said Colonel McGillicuddy. "And while we're disappointed with having to postpone next year's air show, we look forward with great anticipation in welcoming our community partners to the 2009 air show and open house."
