In a rare sight, 7 USAF F-16 Fighting Falcons belonging to the USAF Thunderbirds flew over New York City today as part of a photo mission. The 6 delta pilots and a photo ship flew over Long Island, taking pictures over One World Trade Center, the 9-11 Memorial, Central Park and the Empire State Building. The last time the Thunderbirds flew over NYC was 10 years ago.
Last week, Thunderbird 8 flew over the Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.
If you’re in the Long Island area, you can catch the team’s full performance at the Jones Beach Airshow this Saturday and Sunday, May 23rd and 24th.
