Airmen with the 120th Airlift Wing braved the hot temperatures to get out and have some fun in the sun.

The Montana Air National Guard held their annual Wingman Day at Centene Stadium on Saturday.

The events help strengthen the bonds between the airmen.

This is the first time they have held Wingman Day at Centene Stadium and the airmen were able to compete in several types of team events.

"It is almost like a family picnic where we have our shirts to know which part of the family we are a part of," Col. Norman Hepner, 120th Medical Group Commander, said. "Then we are all coming together as a wing."

The Montana Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) also honored community members on Saturday with a C-130 flight.

The flight helps promote not only Wingman Day, but also the ESGR, a Department of Defense group.

The flight took employees across the state. During the flight, people could stand and walk around, hang out in the cockpit, and watch the airmen open the back of the plane.
