COLUMBUS AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. --
Columbus AFB officials hosted their biannual Career Day event Saturday at the Strategic Air Command facility.
The event was open to all BLAZE Team members, but its primary mission is to expose up and coming student pilots to a variety of aircraft in the Air Force arsenal.
The day started off with briefings at the graduation center for all student pilots. Each of the crews that flew in for the event briefed specific aspects of their aircraft and mission.
There was a B-2 flyover following the briefings.
After the flyover, an A-10 Demo Team performed over the heads of the career day spectators.
There were a large selection of aircraft on hand ranging from the A-10 Thunderbolt II to an E-3 Sentry, all had flight crews on hand to talk in depth about their airframes and let people get a hands on look at their aircraft.
Food and drink vendors were on hand to provide refreshments for all the attendees.
