On a hot summer weekend in July, the Sioux Falls Airshow, Power on the Prairie 2016 drew more than 150,000 people to explore the wonders of the ground and sky. As the “ACE” sponsor for the event, First PREMIER Bank/PREMIER Bankcard helped to make it a free event to the entire hometown community to get up close and personal with the aircraft and watch pilots perform stunts directly overhead.
“PREMIER is committed to our communities and we look for ways to invest and make them better places to live, work and play,” said Miles Beacom, President and CEO of PREMIER Bankcard. “Our recent sponsorship of the Airshow is another example of how we live life the “PREMIER Way” by making a difference in our communities.”
The Airshow is produced through a unique partnership between the Airshow Committee and the South Dakota Air National Guard. In addition, the Guard celebrated its 70th anniversary with an open house. The Airshow also featured the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, U.S. Marine Corps Harrier demo, South Dakota Air National Guard, various stunt planes and much more.
