MISAWA AIR BASE, Japan—Long lines form as attendees wait for food during the 32nd annual Misawa Air Fest here Sept. 4. The Japan Air Self-Defense Force and the 35th Fighter Wing, with associated tenant units, hosted more than 100,000 attendees. Air Fest 2011 was an opportunity for visitors to see eight aerial demonstrations with 19 static displays of JASDF, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy aircraft and private operators.
