Vermont Air National Guard Announces “Hometown Hero”


The Vermont Air National Guard in coordination with the United States Air Force Demonstration Squadron “Thunderbirds” announced the Vermont Air National Guard 70th Anniversary Hometown Hero Flight earlier in the summer.

One lucky hometown hero will get the chance to fly in an F-16 with the Thunderbirds during the Wings Over Vermont Air Show in Burlington.

We learned today that Alex Paci of Fairfax is that hometown hero.

Lt. Col. Rex McGuire, a representative of the Vermont Air Guard Public Affairs Office, joined us on Local 44 Morning Brew to make the announcement.

The Wings Over Vermont Air Show takes place on Saturday, August 13 and Sunday, August 14. Opening ceremonies begin at 10:30 a.m. Saturday.

Local 22 & Local 44 are proud sponsors of the event.
