thunderbirds

Well, as I mentioned the other day, the USAF Thunderbirds came to TAMU today. The show was pretty awesome. I took pictures of them a couple times: coming in and landing, the practice session, the Thunderbirds parked at night, and the actual show.

I think the practice session was a little better than the actual performance — the weather was completely clear during practice but we had low cloud cover during the actual performance. (The clouds were probably around 1000' AGL, while the hard deck for the flight was just 150' AGL. It was still a good show though — I hadn't seen the Thunderbirds before, but had seen the Blue Angels before at the Wings Over Houston airshow several years ago. I can't really compare them since I didn't get to see the Thunderbirds do most of their high-altitude tricks, but it's not every day an acrobatic group comes to TAMU.
