LUKE AFB OPEN DAYS

Postby EGGX TED » Thu Feb 01, 2018 6:22 pm

Looking for a bit of information re the above. Have heard that the parking and then bussing to the show is HORRENDOUS.
Was thinking about arriving on the Sunday, in the vicinity of LUKE about 9am, staying until 2pm, then returning to PHX for a 8.20 flight back to the U.K. Does this plan sound feasible or would I be cutting it too fine because of the reliance of leaving the show early and hoping for not too busy traffic. Ideas and personal experiences very much appreciated.
PS.....We are travelling from YUMA on Sunday morning!!!

It's only 30-40 mins from Luke to the Sky Harbour, so plenty of time.

Thanks for the info. Have been to the area before but was wondering how bad it was during the OPEN DAYS display.

I was there 12 years ago, for the Open Days. Maybe all changed now, but they had a parking area left of the main gate, once it filled then the bus came into play. I am going this year and nearly blew a fuse when the dates were changed, luckily i`m there for two weeks so no real problem.
Get there as early as possible, Parking area "A" is where you want to be, and you should be in a better position for leaving as well. Leaving at 2pm means most people will still be there so a doddle to get out.

I am also planning to be at Luke on the Sunday, as well as Yuma on the Saturday, all being well.

Never been to either before so looking forwards to both :)

Is there something on at Yuma on the Saturday? That would be really cool if there is :)

Thread creeping but Yuma has an airshow on 17 march 2018.

Not sure how much will be on show and will probably reduce activity for the surrounding days?
