Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst is set to open its doors to the community May 5-6, 2018, for the ‘Power in the Pines’ Open House and Air Show. The event is set to feature several military and civilian air and ground acts.

‘Power in the Pines’ will feature aerial performances by the U.S. Air Force F-22 Demonstration Team, the Royal Canadian Air Force CF-18 Demonstration Team, the U.S. Army Parachute Team, The Golden Knights, and flyovers by military and civilian aircraft. In addition, attendees can get up close and personal with military air and ground equipment while experiencing a variety of entertainment throughout the two-day event.

Updates will come over the next several weeks as more acts are added to the show.

The Defense Department hosts open houses to enhance public awareness of the military’s mission, equipment, facilities and personnel and to promote positive community relations.

"We are excited to host our community partners during our open house and air show," said Lt. Col Jeffrey Ulmer, 2018 Open House and Air Show executive director. “JB MDL could not accomplish its mission without the support of our local communities. The ‘Power in the Pines’ Open House and Air Show is our way of giving thanks and providing a look at what we do behind our gates.”

The last open house and air show hosted by JB MDL was in May 2016.
