    I just got back from the Thunderbirds 2009 Season opening show. It is always great watching them and this was no exception. Seeing the 4-Ship diamond coming over sunrise mountain and flying directly overhead is incredible. Yo can actually feel the ground underneath you as they pass. Got a few pictures, but can't seem to post them. Oh well, if you get a chance to see them at an airshow near you enjoy!

    Saw them last year at the local airshow.... definitely an inspiration and something to work towards.

    Actually Potterfan had #3 present her appointment a couple years ago. FiFi came by after work and presented it during a CAP meeting. She is a wonderfull lady.
