Thunderbird site visit

An F-16D Fighting Falcon used by the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds sits on the ramp at the Pittsburgh International Airport Air Reserve Station, Pa., Jan. 25, 2017. Two members of the elite U.S. Air Force precision aerial demonstration team, Capt. Erik Gonsalves and Staff Sgt. Todd Hughes, provided a site visit for an upcoming Open House scheduled for Mother’s Day weekend this year. The only difference between the F-16s used for combat and those used for aerial demonstrations are a smoke-generating system and painting in Thunderbird colors.
