Air Show

Luke AFB Air Show

Every two years, Luke Air Force Base - just north of Goodyear - welcomes the public to Luke Days, one of the most diverse air shows in America. At the 2009 show, the U.S. Air Force's Aerial Demonstration Team - the Thunderbirds - provided their special brand of high-flying excitement. There were also many other aerial presentations, numerous aircraft and ground displays, exhibits, and attractions. The next show will be in 2013.

Mystery Building

Mystery building in Goodyear

"Built it, but they could not come"

But what is that strange structure south of the Interstate near Cotton Lane?

It is a harness racing/trotting track which opened in January 1965, but closed less than two years later. At that time, there was no I-10, or even any major roads leading from Phoenix to Goodyear to allow easy access for patrons to reach the then state-of-the-art facility.

Other than being used in the 1997 movie "No Code of Conduct" starring Martin and Charlie Sheen, the building has been idle for over 40 years. It is private property owned by the adjacent RV Park, and is not open to the public.
