Flying with the Thunderbirds

I took the family to see the air show at Tinker Air Force Base last Saturday. It was hot — really, really, really hot. But it was fun.

Frankly, I wasn’t very excited about the show. I was going because my boys would have fun. But when I saw the planes — the power and the acrobatics — up close, it was clear that I enjoyed it way more than my boys.

Simply put, the Thunderbirds were awesome. This video is proof.

For the record, I enjoyed the show and am in awe of the Thunderbirds, but I wouldn’t have traded places with Tanner. It was plenty exciting enough for me on the ground.
