COYOTES' ROENICK TO FLY IN USAF F-16 THIS FRIDAY,
MARCH 23 AT LUKE AIR FORCE BASE
Phoenix Coyotes' center Jeremy Roenick will fly in an USAF F-16 this Friday, March 23 at 4:30 p.m. at Luke Air Force Base.
Major Tad Clark will take Roenick on an hour-long sortie in an F-16. Roenick will be flying with the USAF Thunderbirds, the Air Force's premier aerial demonstration team. He will experience every maneuver the USAF team will perform during their aerial demonstrations this weekend at Luke Air Force base and will fly faster than the speed of sound and pull 9G's, (nine times the force of gravity).
For at least one day, Roenick will experience what Airmen serving on the front lines of combat do every day in support of the nation and get a glimpse of the pride and professionalism those serving at home and abroad display on a daily basis.
Media will be provided an opportunity to shadow Roenick while he goes through training for the flight. By doing so, they'll be afforded behind-the-scenes access and will see what goes into getting ready to fly, as well as some of the training involved.
Media should arrive at Luke Air Force Base at the South Gate visitor center no later than 1:30 p.m. on Friday and park in the designated media parking area. The gate is located approximately 1 mile south of Glendale Avenue on Litchfield Road.
