FAIRCHILD AIR FORCE BASE—The second and final day of SkyFest wrapped up on Sunday at Fairchild Air Force Base. The air show celebrated the current men and women serving their country and those who served in the past. The event brought in more than 125,000 people on its first day.

One couple traveled from Missouri to see their children serving on base.

"I think it's wonderful to stir up the patriotism in our country, that's always a very necessary thing,” said mother Beverly Rogers.

Father Ernie Rogers served in the Air Force himself.

“It's wonderful, just wonderful, it brought back memories for me,” said Ernie Rogers.

Ernie Rogers said a highlight for him at SkyFest was seeing two vintage warplanes sharing the sky.

"I knew one was going as fast as it could, and one was going as slow as it could go and that was pretty amazing to me,” said Beverly Rogers.

"I think the American public needs to see how ready we can be and when we're called to do so,” said Ernie Rogers.
