Thunderbirds Back for 2014

Posted December 29, 2013 at 12:32pm

Military Times reports that “the Thunderbirds, grounded last spring by sequester-driven budget cuts, will be back in the air in 2014. The Thunderbirds schedule will begin New Year’s Day with a flyover at the Rose Bowl Parade in Los Angeles, followed by a year of airshows and flyovers across the country.”

“In December, the team announced a schedule of 66 demonstrations at 34 locations this year, its 61st season.”

“’We’re really excited. It [2013] was a difficult year for us,’ said Lt. Col. Greg Moseley, lead captain and commander of the team. ‘Not just us, for the entire Department of Defense and the Air Force.’”
