A small number of aircraft arrived at the Kentucky Air National Guard Base today in preparation for this weekend's Thunder Over Louisville air show, including a P-51 Mustang that was once assigned to the unit more than 60 years ago. Many more aircraft will arrive Friday, including the A-10 Thunderbolt II, the F-16 Falcon and a U.S. Navy F/A-18 Tactical Demonstration Team. This year marks the 30th anniversary for the annual event, and the 29th consecutive year in which the Kentucky Air National Guard has served as the base of operations for all military aircraft participating in the show. #KDF #AirNationalGuard #KentuckyNationalGuard #ThunderOverLouisville #KentuckyDerbyFestival
