The event began at the Soldotna Airport MARC hangar with the EAA breakfast and fun flight registration followed with the afternoon activities of a barbeque and Military Appreciation Event at the Kenai Airport. Highlights of the static displays were aircraft from the Alaska Air National Guard 249th Airlift Squadron, 168th Air Refueling Squadron, the Alaska Army Guard, and AT6 History Flight.
