Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson opens its doors for the biannual Arctic Thunder Open House, hosted by Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. The event provides an opportunity to share the aspects of military life and operations with Anchorage and the greater Alaska community, who support the base’s ability to protect us at home, and engage overseas.

This year’s Arctic Thunder is special, with the anticipated participation of aircraft from allied air forces. There are over 40 static displays, and over seven hours of flying activities, including six military demonstrations, the joint forces demonstration, and eight civilian and warbird demonstrations.

The Alaska Air Show Association is proud of its collaboration with the base and the community and contributing to the aerial displays.

No tickets are required and parking is free. Personal vehicles are allowed entry through general public access areas at the Richardson and Boniface gates. Motorhomes and RVs are not permitted.
