There will be an Air Force Thunderbirds air show at Grissom Air Reserve Base in September, reports WTTV.
The show is in about three weeks, on September 7 and 8. This is a free event.
“The Thunderbirds, they’re the premier aerial demonstration team of the Air Force,” said Grissom Public Affairs Director Douglas Hays in WTTV’s report. “So nobody does it better in the Air Force than they do.”
The 434th Air Refueling Wing is at the reserve base. On Monday, WTTV reports Grissom pilots carried out a refueling mission for elite F-16 pilots. They met with the Thunderbirds while they were on their way to New Jersey.
“We’re happy to be able to provide them fuel as they go from one air show to the next,” Hays said in WTTV’s report. “Then they’ll be coming back to Grissom September 7th and 8th for our air show.”
