MT ANG offers unique experiences at Montana State Fair

If you’re at the Montana State Fair and looking to test your strength, the Montana Air National Guard is the booth to visit.

The crew has manned a booth in years past, but this year, they wanted to be more interactive.

The team set up new visual reality equipment to allow the public to experience a HALO jump, which is a high-altitude jump with a free fall at incredible speeds, according to Skydive High.

“When you first step out of the plane, you can just feel that jump into the air and then it’s just calm floating,” Richard Swenson, a fair patron, said.

The booth also offers a tire flip contest. The activities are free at MANG’s booth, but you must be at least 16 years old.

The Montana State Fair runs through August 3. There are several concerts and acts scheduled to perform during the week-long event.
