If you didn't see the sounds of freedom, you could certainly hear them at New River Air Station in Jacksonville.
The Sounds of Freedom Air Show officially opened up to the public Saturday, and boy did they take advantage of it. The air show only comes around every two years, and officials at New River were expecting as many as 80,000 people for the two day event. There were stunt pilots, parachuters, bombing runs, and of course the precision team, The Snowbirds. But there were planes on exhibit as well so families could learn about our military and what they do.
The 2006 Sounds of Freedom Air Show will kick off Sunday at noon, but the gates open at 9 a.m., if families want to get there early.
