Greeney: Why are we using USAF jets in air shows?

Posted 11/30/21

Do we really need our Air Force planes doing aerial stunts in 2022? Personally, I find this “entertainment” to be a major waste, air pollution, noise pollution, unnecessary risk to the pilots and the attendees.

Unnecessary wasteful use of these huge F-16 planes. Our Air Force pilots do not need to practice high-stakes air tricks but rather prepare for probable serious happenings in the future.

Who is paying for the gasoline at these new inflated prices?
