Two Thunderbirds One Inverted

The very cooperative United States Air Force Thunderbirds stopped exactly where I asked them to stop so I could get this photograph. At the Reno Air Races 2021.


The Thunderbirds Straight Up

The United States Air Force Thunderbirds last week at the Reno Air Races 2021. It is the Thunderbirds that caught my aviation imagination going back to the 1960’s. It is a thrill for me to see and photograph them.


Reno Air Races 2021

Saturday morning I fly up to the Reno Air Races. I am on the team for the Palm Springs Air Museum. We are racing three airplanes, two P-51 Mustangs and a P-63 Kingcobra. We are also flying up our T-6 and a C-47. An entire Air Force! I will be flying up in another P-51 Mustang but if one of these guys could take me with them that would be great. I am all about being time efficient. Less travel time is good. Thanks in advance Thunderbirds if you could stop by and pick me up. Photograph from the 2019 Reno Air Races.

USAF Thunderbirds At Reno

Just over a week ago at the Reno Air Races. The United States Air Force Thunderbirds brought incredible excitement and aerial precision. Daily their lengthy demonstrations roared over the crowd demanding unwavering attention. Although I shot plenty of photographs, sometimes I would just watch in awe. It was simply breathtaking!
