Dunleavy campaign signs go ‘beast mode’ for JBER Air Show

ARCTIC THUNDER BRINGS OUT THE NEXT DUNLEAVY SIGN

Must Read Alaska has snapped a “stealth” photo of the latest Dunleavy for Alaska sign.

It’s a limited edition campaign sign, made in Alaska, with a stealth bomber depicted on it.

But it’s going to be rare, as it will only be handed out by Dunleavy volunteers at the Boniface and Fort Richardson entrances to Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson on Saturday morning during the Arctic Thunder Air Show.

The special campaign sign for Mike Dunleavy, a candidate for governor, joins the four other special campaign signs already being printed continuously to keep up with demand. They feature an orca and fishing boat, caribou and hunters, fishing Alaskans, and a bear and float plane.

This latest sign, like the others, was designed by Alaskan artist Paxson Woelber. Dark blue, it has an F-35 in “beast mode” with weapons revealed under a green ribbon of Northern Lights, as the aircraft crosses Alaska’s signature constellation of the Big Dipper.

 

Lockheed Martin built the F-35 with an integrated stealth design to avoid radar detection, but if the situation demands, the F-35 can go into the more muscular “beast” profile.

ABOUT THE AIR SHOW

This year’s Arctic Thunder is unique with the anticipated participation of aircraft from allied air forces.

The show has more than 40 static displays, and over seven hours of flying activities, including six military demonstrations, the joint forces demonstration, and eight civilian and warbird demonstrations.

Arctic Thunder is scheduled for June 30 and July 1, 2018, with entry starting at 8:30 am. Admission and parking is free, and veteran air show attendees know that it’s best to go early.

Arctic Thunder’s general public entry is restricted to the Boniface Parkway or Fort Richardson gates only.

  • Well I guess its time to come out of stealth mode and put forward a fiscal plan that will cut the budget and make our government more transparent and efficient going forward. Our 81-9-10 plan will refill the CBR and allow for a full Hammond 50-50 plan to restore the PFD with interest and apply a formula equal to the historic average with inflation proofing that protects both the peoples interest and not just the Governments half of these common rights that need to be restored and protected. We will implement a plan that will allow competition and completion of infrastructure, which will bring us into the 21st century…Wright for Alaska. Look forward to seeing folks at the Airshow JBER and Elmendorf (my place of birth). SheldonforAlaska.com and WrightforAlaska.com..
