The Thunderbirds have the privilege and responsibility to perform for people all around the world, displaying the pride, precision and professionalism of American Airmen.

AOPA Editor at Large Dave Hirschman wore a Navy t-shirt and taunted the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds pilot hoping to bring on the Gs.

In every hour-long demonstration, the team combines years of training and experience with an attitude of excellence to showcase what the Air Force is all about.

WATCH THUNDERBIRDS & BLUE ANGEL FLYOVER !!!

The sharply choreographed, drill-style ground ceremony kicks off the demonstration by showcasing the attention to detail and esprit de corps that defines our enlisted members. As the jets take to the skies and fly only a few feet from wingtip to wingtip, the crowd gets a glimpse of the awesome skills and capabilities that all fighter pilots must possess. The solo pilots integrate their own loud and proud routine, exhibiting some of the maximum capabilities of the F-16 Fighting Falcon — the Air Force’s premier multi-role fighter jet.
