Providence VA Medical Center, Rhode Island
F-16 Viper East Demonstration Team Visits Hospitalized Vets
Members of the Air Combat Command F-16 Viper East Demonstration Team out of Shaw Air Force Base, South Carolina, visited with hospitalized Veterans at the Providence VA Medical Center this past Friday (June 24). The F-16 Demo Team was in town for the annual Rhode Island Air National Guard Air Show at Quonset Point held this year on June 25 and June 26.
The F-16 Viper East Demonstration Team is one of two F-16 aerial demonstration teams in the Air Combat Command. The F-16 Fighting Falcon, more commonly known to military pilots as the Viper, is a compact, extremely maneuverable multi-role fighter aircraft. The F-16 Demo Team's participation in this year's Air Show brings another opportunity for the team to represent those who deserve the most credit--the everyday, hard-working Airmen voluntarily serving America and defending freedom.
