Highlights of the Thunderbirds performances and more during its 2016 show season ... including the sharply choreographed, drill-style ground ceremony that kicks off the demonstration; the jets taking to the skies and fly only a few feet from wingtip to wingtip; the awesome skills and capabilities that all fighter pilots possess as each pilot integrates 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.
