Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge for the week is Anything to do With Jets and Planes. The photos in this post were taken at Travis Air Force Base and feature the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. The precision drill both preflight and post flight is impressive and stirring. The flying is amazing and heartstopping as the F-16’s fly at speeds reaching 500 to 700 mph (800 to 1,130 km/h) and getting as close as 18 inches apart.
This was the first airshow that I took my grandson to. While the flying was a thrill to watch it was just about as thrilling for me when he got to meet one of the pilots.
