No comments

The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds put on quite a show with their awesome demos at Airshows around the world. The mix of their flying skills, awesome maneuvers, and the show itself, makes them one of the best aerobatic teams in the world. A special part of the show has become a tradition to the Thunderbirds; how they salute their dedicated ground crew, and vice versa. Just minutes before the start of the show – when they taxi to the runway – the pilots and the ground crew salute eachother in a way that you can expect from the amazing Thunderbirds. A lot of show, but very entertaining and special.
