Thunderbirds Roar at Sun 'n Fun


You want an airshow? You got an airshow. When the skydivers drop in and Old Glory unfurls, you know it’s showtime as people gravitate away from buildings and exhibits and head for the flight line.

Despite the shift in attention, though, people still periodically drift back to the products and planes between favorite acts.
But few things stop a crowd more than the roar of military jets performing, and Thursday’s rehearsal of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds did exactly that—stopped crowds in their tracks as people craned their necks and scanned all four compass points to catch the F-16s no matter which direction they roared in from.

The Thursday performance was only a practice session in preparation for the full shows coming later at Sun ‘n Fun.

Dave travels far and wide as a long-time aviation journalist, so the subject of survival skills—what to pack, how to use it—was never far from his curiously sloping frontal lobes. Because we all tend to focus on the building and test-flying, knowing what to bring on that first long cross-country of the year gets lost like a Cleco in a chip storm.
