MISAWA AIR BASE, Japan — Misawa officials are expecting about 100,000 visitors Sunday for its annual air festival.
The festival will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the U.S.-Japan military alliance, a news release said.
Featured will be a performance by the Japan Air Self-Defense Force’s Blue Impulse aerial team. Musical performances will include both the JASDF band and the Orient Express — the U.S. Navy’s 7th Fleet band.
Gates open at 7 a.m., and the air show finishes at 3 p.m., following an F-2 aerial demonstration.
Visitors are reminded not to bring coolers, pets, balloons, bicycles, roller skates or skate boards.
