Fort Sill to Reschedule Concert and Air Show due to weather
Fort Sill – Fort Sill officials have made the decision to cancel Saturday’s air show and celebration of the 100th anniversary of the post’s Henry Post Army Airfield. Officials say the weather forecast for Saturday calls for 20-25 mph sustained winds with temperatures not reaching above freezing until around noon. “We really hate to do this. We had a very good air show planned,” said Brenda Spencer-Ragland, Fort Sill Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation director. “But, most of our aerial and static display aircraft cancelled because they didn’t think they could get here, or perform on Saturday, because of the weather.” Spencer-Ragland said food vendors also started cancelling because of the weather forecast. Fort Sill officials are rescheduling both the Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band concert and the air show for July 27, for the concert and July 28th for the airshow.
