2015 Gulf Coast Salute

Tyndall Air Force Base
On behalf of the more than 5,000 Airmen of Team Tyndall, it is my pleasure to invite you to the 2015 Gulf Coast Salute open house and air show on April 11 and 12. The base gates will open at 9:00 am each day; admission and parking are both absolutely free.

Tyndall is the “Home of Air Dominance,” and after watching the air show, you will know exactly how and why we got our name. For this year’s show we’ve pulled out all the stops and will feature performances by the Thunderbirds, the F-22 demonstration team, the Golden Knights and many more.

Our goal for the Gulf Coast Salute is that you and your families leave with an experience of a lifetime and with a better understanding of Tyndall, our mission and the Airmen who make it happen every day.

We look forward to showing you, and all our community partners, how much we appreciate your friendship and support. Without you, we could not accomplish our mission to “train and project unrivaled combat air power.”

I look forward to seeing you at the show!

Commander, 325th Fighter Wing
