Viewers had a chance to see some of the twenty different aerial performances by military and non-military air-crafts. There are also local vender's out there supporting these Angels, everything from food to military personal educating the public about the Armed Forces. For some in attendance, the Air Show's return to Grand Junction has been a long time coming and four years has felt like a lifetime.

"We wait for it every four years, it one of my wife's passions is airplanes. We start tracking about three months before, we know what year it’s coming and we start planning around it,” said Air Show spectator Derek Thompson.

Just in case you missed the Air Show today, you can still catch some of the intense action tomorrow. Gates will open to the public right around nine a-m.
