USAF Thunderbirds 2011 Schedule

Throughout the year, the famous red, white and blue Thunderbirds fly with precision and pride representing the very best pilots of the U.S. Air Force. If you want to experience their amazing and patriotic airshow, checkout one of their stopovers at a major airshow near you. The Thunderbirds are the air demonstration squadron of the U.S. Air Force and they are based at Nellis AFB in Las Vegas, Nevada. The squadron tours the United States and much of the world, performing aerobatic formation and solo flying in specially-marked USAF jet aircraft (This year still the F-16). The name is taken from the legendary creature that appears in the mythology of several indigenous North American cultures.
