2016 Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst Open House Arrival Photos


Written on August 2, 2016.


The 2016 Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst Open House & Airshow (also known as Power in the Pines) was held on May 14-15, 2016 and was headlined by the USAF Thunderbirds, the US Army Golden Knights, and the Breitling Jet Team. 

These photos were taken on May 12, 2016, and are the result of spending the day photographing airshow related activity at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.  These were all taken from on base through the assistance of a very good friend.

It should be noted the C-12 activity along with the C-17 and KC-10 departure photos are not airshow-related, but it is assumed the KC-10 went out to refuel the Thunderbirds, as tradition for an Air Force Base that hosts either the Blue Angels or Thunderbirds and has tankers based there goes out to provide the jet team with fuel as they make their way to the show site.

Apologies for the large copyrights in each photo - this is necessary in this day and age where photos are widely stolen and passed along as if they are one's own.
