Thunderbirds zboara cu F-16 din august 1982.
At a recent air show hosted by Columbus AFB, Miss., the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds performed their 2,000th official demonstration in the F-16 Fighting Falcon.
The Thunderbirds, officially known as the U.S. Air Force Air Demonstration Squadron, have been flying the multi-role fighter aircraft since August 1982. The unit, which dates back to 1953, has flown the F-16 for more than half of its history.
„The F-16 is a remarkable and dependable aircraft,” said Capt. Lucas Buckley, Thunderbirds maintenance officer.
