Thunderbirds and Blue Angels in combined appearances.

The Air Force Thunderbirds and the Navy Blue Angels flight demonstration teams are having a series of joint flyovers of multiple metropolitan areas as a tribute to all the health care providers and first responders.

Saw some video of the flights this morning. Even distant view on a TV screen and just straight line flying was impressive.

Off to the side there was a pursuit plane, obviously taking lots of pictures. When those appear on the USAF and Navy websites, I’ll post some. In the meantime, here are a few pix of those astounding pilots, for your viewing pleasure.
