  • Description

    The Thunderbirds are the US Air Force's precision flying team. They give exhibitions all over the world. Some library shots of them in action comprise the film.

    Their most famous stunt is the high bomb burst. They fly straight up, with their wingtips only a few apart in a diamond formation. Then each plane splits off.

    The Thunderbirds fly F-100 Super Sabre aircraft. The planes can fly at supersonic speeds. Normally, they go through their wing-tip to wing-tip manuevers at subsonic speeds.
