Aerial flyovers, military band concerts and Air Force-themed film festivals are planned for Air Force Week 2008 in Southern California from Nov. 14 through 21.
The week-long extravaganza will showcase the Air Force, its people and the mission throughout the region.
All events, except for sports venues where the Air Force will be honored and band performances at area theme parks, are free and open to the public.

That led to the idea of hosting Air Force Weeks, which are designed to build new relationships in metropolitan areas, expose Americans to the incredible power of the Air Force, and strengthen support for Airmen serving worldwide in defense of freedom. St. Louis hosted the inaugural event in 2006. In addition to Los Angeles, Air Force Weeks in 2008 were held in Philadelphia and Omaha, Neb.

COMBAT CARGO, KOREA - The 314th Troop Carieer Group
C-119 Flying Boxcars do not start out for 'the mountain' unless weather reports are good. They must be able to see the tiny drop zone on the peak before they can drop. But weather is unpredictable in high mountains, that often when the planes arrive, the entire area is 'socked in' with heavy clouds. In radio contact with the 'men on mountains,' the pilots circle hoping for a break in clouds and drop on lower slopes. On several occasions, the planes have had to return to Japan as many as three times without dropping. But 314th Troop Carieer Group pilots are persistent, and eventually win through to drop successfully.
