Lightning LEGs / Thunderbird Skills.
HIGH-RES time with the F-16 Fighting Falcons a.k.a. “Vipers” and hot chicks with nice BUNs.
Let’s FIRE it UP…
…break-out the large desktop monitor…
…and enjoy some pure,
“America, F**k YEAH”.
WHY, Post this gallery today???
Last Saturday, I got the chance to take my daughter to NOT ONLY SEE the T-birds in action; along with showing her some of the coolest USAF aircraft ever built…
…I also got to meet-up with Chivers that operate the massive C-5 Galaxy.
(Largest transport of our Air Force).
During the Diamond Pass formation…pilots fly???
Thunderbird bad-A pilots fly, as close as 18-Inches apart.
From Texas airshow at Randolph AFB:
Today we had the honor of flying Officer Tyler Sauvage from the San Antonio Police Department.
during a routine traffic stop, a passenger opened fire on Sauvage. He was shot in the hand and dropped his weapon due to injury.
During the firefight, his radio was also shot from his hip and rendered inoperable…
…While still under fire, officer Sauvage left cover to retrieve his weapon, cleared a malfunction, and neutralized the threat. He then continued to monitor the scene until backup could arrive.
Officer Sauvage showed tremendous courage and composure in the face of danger. He effectively used his training and experience to neutralize the threat while overcoming injury and radio communication failure.
Tyler, thank you so much for spending your morning with us and letting us say thank you! Your service in the name of something greater than yourself is exactly why you were nominated by your community as a #hometownhero .
It was an honor to meet you and fly with you!
When the show ended, I first showed my kid the most advanced human-piloted fighter ever created (F-22 Raptor)…
…then I got to take her up to the cockpit of the huge C-5.
This only happens for friends/family of the crew.
Luck would have it…a long time friend named “Steve-O” brought us up top to check ‘er out.
Thank You to all involved with the Texas Airshow this year.
The Thunderbirds were just AWESOME…
…and I got to have a Daddy-Daughter day that I’ll truly never forget.
