Wink Good Stuff!!

While the Blue Angels are a good show to watch, being an Air Force brat, I'm just a bit more fond of the U. S. Air Force Thunderbirds!!!

Following a Blue Angels performance is a hard act to follow. In 1992 I saw them at the air show at the Opa Locka Naval Air Station in Florida. They put on a hell of a show!! The next act was a solo performance by the opposing solo pilot of the Thunderbirds. Not wishing to be upscaled by the Navy, he made his entrance, coming in from over the everglades, 15 seconds before the announcer was to introduce him. He came in at mach 1.5 (a big no-no over residential areas) and broke the sound barrier! He set off every car burglar alarm in the parking lot!!! He then performed an 8.5 G 180 degree turn over the 250 foot wide main runway at 50 feet over show center! This was followed by him going straight vertical on full afterburner until he was clean out of sight. He reversed his direction with a hammerhead turn and dove straight vertical at the runway!!! At 100 feet, he leveled off over the runway and sped off at mach 1.5 over show center, back out to the everglades.

That was the end of his performance. He showed his skill and the capability of his aircraft in less than 2 minutes!! All to the tune of blaring burglar alarms. BTW, he was reprimanded by his commanding officer for the supersonic entrance. The Air Force also had to pay for broken windows, mirrors and fine china of area residents, that were shattered by his grand entrance!! The reprimand was probably followed by a slap on the back for upstaging the Blue Angels!!!
