WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The 104th Fighter Wing has been awarded the International Council of Air Shows Pinnacle Award for the 2017 Westfield International Air Show traffic logistics plan.

These awards go to places that show innovation, ingenuity, achievement, professionalism, and excellence during the 2017 air show season.

The 104th Fighter Wing hosted 92,000 visitors over the air show weekend, parking more than 17,000 cars during the event.
