The Wings Over Columbus Air and Space Show at Columbus Air Force Base ended Saturday. 

 

The event, which was initially scheduled for Saturday and today, was reduced to Saturday only because of bad weather expected today, CAFB Chief of Public Affairs Sonic Johnson confirmed. 

 

A CAFB press release said the decision was made "with spectator and volunteer safety in mind." 

 

The air show was sponsored by the Columbus-Lowndes Convention and Visitors Bureau and featured a demonstration by the U.S. Army Golden Knights at 11:15 a.m. followed throughout the day by performances from an Altus C-17 demonstration team, a F-22 Raptor demonstration team and more. 

 

"Columbus AFB is grateful for all the support from the local community, performers, vendors and general public for making today's event so successful," the press release said.
