Sun N Fun 2016 displayed a great air show

U.S. Army Golden Knight Parachuter
                If you were in Lakeland Florida recently then you probably noticed the amazing airshow that took place during the 5th through the 10th of April. This year the skies were full of jet demonstrations, aerobatic performances, hot air balloons and the U.S. Army’s Parachuting Team, The Golden Knights.

Kirby Chambliss and Mike Goulian
There were also Red Bull race demonstrations that allowed Kirby Chambliss and Mike Goulian to demonstrate their aerobatics, speed and precision skills as they raced around the 80ft pylons in a friendly competition. The Breitling Jet Team closed the air show each night with a very entertaining display of team formations, high speed passes and beautifully choreographed maneuvers.

                The Virginia Department of Aviation participated by bringing their trailer exhibit to help promote aviation and tourism in Virginia. The staff was able to educate people from all over the United States who were interested in Virginia aviation.
