Video: going supersonic with the Thunderbirds

1 min read

The US Air Force Thunderbirds are a fixture of the airshow circuit, entertaining crowds all over the country with their high speed passes and formation maneuvers. With a global pandemic, the Thunderbirds didn’t get to fly many shows in 2020, so we thought this video was a good replacement. You’ll ride along for some high speed/high G maneuvers, but you’ll also learn a lot about the F-16 and how the Thunderbirds operate.
