Gowen Thunder Air Show is brought to you by the Idaho National Guard


For more than 75 years, thousands of Citizen-Soldiers and Airmen of the Idaho National Guard have shared the land and runways of Gowen Field with the city of Boise and the surrounding community. Today, the base is home to units of the Idaho Army National Guard and Idaho Air National Guard, as well the Army Reserve, and Navy and Marine Reserve.
