The Thunderbirds Of America

The Thunderbirds Of America

Recently I received an invitation in Las Vegas by my daughter to visit her and her family and watching her husband at work. Well. Las Vegas, could it say no invitation. Under normal circumstances it would be sufficient. But not the visit!! You see my son Steve by another name “Dallas” to. Steve Horton Steve is a major U.S. Air Force flight demonstration team’s # 4 slot pilot “Thunderbird.” Show that this occasion is shared by the first season show, but the whole team of friends and take on each mobile-only household to open and several senior generals have pen and paper notes.

About 1000 received an honorary team do what they see in their family’s material Nellis AFB in the dark sky of the new 2006. The crowd with it feels like a private audience with the Pope will be 200,000 persons as compared to a normal display are very small. 4 July1987 the largest crowd – in days of awe only 2.25 million watched Rabbit Island. And if that’s not enough to show the following night it is the annual season kick-off dinner, at least in part, to celebrate the end of rigorous training schedule. This year’s dinner at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino markets held in the beautiful Las Vegas.

It provides me the opportunity to meet some new players, “abnormally dangerous and difficult”, including Kevin Robbins International Air Survey Center aka commander or leadership, “boss”; Ed Casey, opposing solo Major; CPT Nichole Malachowski, right-wing aka “FiFi”; and CPT Tad Clark, narrator. “FiFi” is the first female Thunderbirds flying team member’s ode to her abilities, because a pilot is a very good morning “Good Morning America” story theme. Because you might imagine that the elite six an aircraft, the other six officers and 135 outstanding young men and women’s mobility substitute teachers group is, in short, the best in the world.

All that talent, energy, commitment, teamwork, pride in what they do, and how they do it to belittle the morning I was in their presence, but it is proud to be Americans. In short, the main mission is to support Thunderbird absorption and retention programs, and, as you might imagine the public relations. When they do fly, the team probably spent as much time in meetings and say hello. They are PR machines and are not a bad machine at that. Thunderbirds are from March to go up every year in November with the usual 65-75 months in 30 states show a very demanding schedule.
