Dan Buchanan performs during SkyFest 2014 at Fairchild Air Force Base, Wash., May 31, 2014. Buchanan suffered a spinal injury, losing his ability to walk in 1981, but has continued to enjoy his thrill of flying off mountain tops and performing at air shows across the world. SkyFest is Fairchild’s air show and open house, giving the local and regional community the opportunity to view Airmen and our resources. The event typically draws more than 150,000 people. SkyFest 2008, headlined by the Blue Angels, was the largest event held in Spokane since the 1974 World’s Fair. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Veronica Montes via Wikimedia Commons.
