The Thunderbirds...



Two weeks in a row for Sky Watch Friday. These photos were taken the same place as last weeks, Andrews Air Force Base during the air show for Armed Forces day. The jets are part of the Thunderbirds air show. The Thunderbirds have entertained crowds for more than 65 years. They performed for an hour flying Lockheed Martin F-16 jets at speeds in excess of 450 miles per hour. Click tthe link to the left to visit other great skies from all over the world.
