Thunderbirds Soar Into 70

Up, up and away!

The Thunderbirds, the Air Force flight demonstration squadron, took to the skies during the team's inaugural winter training trip at Spaceport America, New Mexico, earlier this month.

This year marks the team's 70th anniversary and the trip allowed them to put to use seven decades of air show experience and best practices in preparation for the upcoming season.
