The Air Force’s F-35A demonstration team based in northern Utah will launch its 2020 season with performances in Arizona.

A schedule posted on the website of the 388th Fighter Wing at Hill Air Force Base says the team’s first performance is scheduled March 13-14 at the Marine Corps Air Station at Yuma, followed by a March 21-22 performance at Luke Air Force Base in metro Phoenix.

Other scheduled 2020 performances include one on Sept. 17-20 in Reno, Nevada. The team formerly was based at Luke before moving to Hill, where the team will perform June 27-28.

Officials say preparations for the 2020 season are underway and that the team is expected to begin flying practice around Hill in early January.
