US Air Force Thunderbird’s are in TOWN!

Today, I had the most AMAZING opportunity flying on a US Air Force KC-10 Tanker, all thanks to LtCol Robert Couse-Baker (Thank you, Bob!!) A group of us photographers got to take photos from the KC-10 tanker fueling the USAF Thunderbird’s! Wow! Wow! Wow!! This is just a sneak peak from today and I will blog about this super cool experience soon.

I am copying the info. from Bob’s flickr but THERE IS A FREE EXPO SHOW THIS WEEKEND AT TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE!!!

The free open house featuring the USAF Thunderbirds, Air Force Academy Wings of Blue Parachute Team and other exciting aerial and ground attractions. Admission is free. Gates open at 8:30 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, July 30 and 31. See more information here.

I hope you guys can make it!! It’s going to be an AWESOME SHOW!!! Stay tuned for more photos soon!!!

    My name is Dave. I was the boom operator on that flight. I was wanting to know if you got anymore shots from that flight. I’d like to see as many as you still may have. Thank you.

    Great shot by the way.

      Just a LITTLE in the beginning when the plane was going backwards. It seriously felt like we were sitting in a giant simulator box since there weren’t any windows. But other than that I was good! šŸ˜€
