Las Vegas, USA - November 13, 2010: United States Air Force Thunderbirds Demonstration Squadron flying in formation presentic characteristics od F-16 Fighting Falcon pinted in the famous blue red and white color which are also colors of the Flag of the United States of America
Description
The Thunderbirds are the air demonstration squadron of the U.S. Air Force (USAF), based at Nellis AFB in Las Vegas, Nevada. The squadron tours the United States and much of the world, performing aerobatic formation and solo flying in specially-marked USAF jet aircraft. Officers serve a two-year assignment with the squadron, while enlisted personnel serve three to four. Replacements must be trained for about half of the team each year, providing a constant mix of experience. The squadron performs no more than 88 air demonstrations each year and has never canceled a demonstration due to maintenance difficulty.
