Thunderbirds Are Go !!

With their last two European visits being in 2001 and 2007, The Thunderbirds, the U.S.Air Force Display Team  made a rare UK appearance at RAF Waddington during the first weekend of July 2011.
Based at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada the team are very different to most of their European counterparts as they operate a front line fighter aircraft, the F-16, rather than a training aircraft. As a result their show is more about noise, speed and presence when compared to the likes of our own Red Arrows.
