The Thunderbirds are back for Wings Over Homestead!
After a four year absence, the thunderous roar of the United States Air Force Thunderbird’s F-16 demonstration team will be tearing through the skies over Homestead Air Reserve Base during the 2016 Wings Over Homestead Air Show, Nov 5 – 6.
This year’s event theme is: “Spirit of Flight, Celebrating Superior Air Power”.
Wings Over Homestead organizers are really excited to have the T-birds and Golden Knights back in Homestead. In 2012, the air show was attended by almost 300,000 people making it one of the largest shows attended in the country.
The Thunderbirds squadron is an Air Combat Command unit composed of eight pilots (including six demonstration pilots), four support officers, four civilians and more than 100 enlisted personnel performing in almost 30 job specialties.
Flying the Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcon, more than 280 million people in all 50 states and 57 foreign countries have seen the red, white, and blue jets in more than 3,500 aerial demonstrations.
