It’s known as the largest two-day event in the state of Alaska. Arctic Thunder features several flight demonstrations including that of local talent.

Anchorage-born Marcus Paine has been a pilot for over two decades and will be performing in his seventh of the bi-annual Air Show hosted by JBER.

Paine will be flying a 1941 Boeing Stearman, an aircraft he believes is the classic airshow airplane.

Helping organize the aerial displays for Arctic Thunder is Anchorage-based nonprofit Alaska Air Show Association. Through volunteer efforts and collaboration with the base, the organization has brought together performers from the state and the Lower 48.

They hope the event will highlight and inspire aviation interest. 

The doors will open for Arctic Thunder at 9 a.m. Saturday.
