Friday afternoon, several viewers' faces were brightened by jets making smiley faces over Lubbock. We began receiving pictures on our Facebook page around 3 p.m. asking what this was about.
It seems this jet art was courtesy of some of the planes participating in the South Plains Air Show on Saturday.
The show takes place at the Slaton Municipal Airport and will feature several aerobatic performances. Spectators will also see a reenactment of the Doolittle Raid on Tokyo by the Yellow Rose CAF B-25 "Mitchell" Bomber. Police will be out with a 300 mph jet-powered police car called "Ms. D'Meaner." There will even be a rock-climbing wall for the kids.
The show begins at 9 a.m. and costs $5 for kids ages 5-12 and $10 for adults. Kids under 5 get in free.
