COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

We now know just how much the 2016 Thunder in the Valley Air Show raised. 

A check for $71,000 was presented at the Columbus Airport to youth organizations and charities in the area. 

Some of the organizations include the Chattahoochee Boy Scouts of America, the Muscogee County Sheriff's Department and the Anna Elizabeth Shepherd Home. 

The presentation was also the kick-off for the planning of the 2017 Thunder in the Valley.

"We are going to have a jet truck,” said event coordinator Phaedra Childers. “The shockwave jet truck is a semi-truck.  You got to come see it. It is going to be spectacular. We have been waiting to get this vehicle at our show for over two years."

This was the fourth largest year of giving in the 19 years the air show has been held in the area.
