An Air Force Thunderbird made a special appearance at Kirtland Air Force Base.
Thunderbird No. 8 performed a site survey at Kirtland making sure the area was safe. It was in preparation for the Air and Space Fiesta featuring the Thunderbird’s aerial demonstration team.
One of the pilots said a fan-favorite move starts with the “trail the diamond roll.”
“As the crowd is distracted by the gracefulness of that, No. 5 comes in and gives them a little shock and awe if you will,” Major Jason Markzon said.
The Air and Space Fiesta is a free event on May 18.
