    We got an air show going on this weekend for the 4th of July, right at our airport KBTL. What's even cooler is that the THUNDERBIRDS are parking on the College of Aviation's ramp. It's pretty sweet seeing them up close, and they're performing several times in the next couple days.

    Cool Shawn! Be kinda nice if you could scam a ride in a 2 seater! lol ;) I remember when the F-16 'Fighting Falcon' as it was first known, came out. They did it's debut demo at the Paris Airshow in 1976 or 77 I believe and they were up I think second in line. After it went up and did it's demo, no one else wanted to demo their Fighters as they kinda said "what's the use?" Blew em all away! Even the USSR went 'Ruh Rohsky' :D:cool: My youngest daughter lives kinda near Selfridge AFB and she said she has to plug her ears especially at airshow time, and I said "That's the sound of Freedom!"

    I am blessed to live not all that far from Nellis AFB where the Thunderbirds are based. I work about 40 miles north of downtown Las Vegas, and they can often be seen practicing over the Nellis Test Range across the highway from us. They flew right over the house in formation the day that we moved in.
