WLOX Editorial: Glad to see the Keesler air show return

Good news from Keesler Air Force Base. For the first time since 2011, Keesler will host an air show and open house next spring.

We applaud the defense department's move to reinstate this kind of event. It is good for military and community relations. And of course it helps Air Force recruitment and retention.

The Keesler air show went away with federal budget cuts. We are glad it's back April 11 and 12, 2015. The 2011 show drew 160 thousand people. We are all invited back in the spring to enjoy what typically promises to be an amazing show.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
