The 173rd Fighter Wing will host a Sentry Eagle Open House on Saturday, June 25 and admission is free.

“We are pleased to announce that we will host a 2022 Sentry Eagle Open House,” said Col. Jeff Edwards, 173rd Fighter Wing commander.  “This event is an opportunity to showcase our mission of providing air superiority as the premiere F-15C training base for the United States Air Force, as well as say thank you to our Airmen and supportive community.”

During the Open House the Kingsley Field gates will be open to the community, providing a behind the scenes look at what the Airmen accomplish every day at the 173rd Fighter Wing.  

Additionally, there will be multiple aerial demonstrations, static display aircraft, flightline operations viewing opportunities, recruiting events, and local vendors.   

“The Sentry Eagle Open House will be an amazing event and opportunity for the public to get an up close and personal look at our mission here at Kingsley Field,” said Edwards.
