NAVAL AIR FACILITY EL CENTRO — Thousands of community members and out-of-town visitors, along with those sitting outside their nearby homes or perched atop haystacks, took in the sights and sounds of the 2014 Naval Air Facility El Centro Air Show on Saturday.

This year marked the 47th anniversary of the local air show, which featured a wide variety of military and civilian aircraft, numerous food vendors and vehicle and static displays as well.
