A Thunderbird performance displays the pride, precision and professionalism of the team while highlighting the skills and training indicative of all members of the U.S. Air Force. Years of training and a lifetime of dreaming are brought together in the hour-long demonstration, exhibiting what the Air Force is all about.

Showcasing the utmost professionalism and the esprit de corps shared by our enlisted members, the sharp movements and rhythm of the showline embody the ground ceremony. As the jets take to the skies, the maneuvers flown demonstrate the awesome capabilities and skills that all fighter pilots must possess. From the loops and rolls to the formation flying and high-speed passes – these are just a small example of what is required of every combat aviator.

The demonstration is a mix of six aircraft performing formation flying and solo routines. The four-ship Diamond formation demonstrates the precision and training of Air Force pilots, as well as the gracefulness of the F-16. The two solos display the power and maximum capabilities of the mighty F-16 Fighting Falcon, a front-line fighter.
