Admiral Yamamoto infamously said "You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a man with a rifle behind every blade of grass."
And so it should be, a nation of riflemen....
As of 0900 Greeley has a low cloud ceiling, probably 1200'AGL. As long as the cloud ceiling doesn't get lower, we should be in for a treat!
Got my 400mm zoom lens on the Nikon. Hope to get a least a couple of decent pix.
While any opportunity to watch the T-Birds is appreciated, it sure seems spurious to attribute this flight plan as a tribute to Covid responders. Especially over a state that has been relatively minimally hit?
All part of the PR machine, Ed.
They need to be seen. Consider it a bit of a show for those that are stuck in the house. Good for them.
If I see them, it will be only the second time I've seen the Thunderbirds in flight. I saw them at an airshow in SoCal decades ago, so this will be a treat.
1400. Black eye for the Air Force. Thirty minutes later than announced schedule, one, repeat one, flew by 8 miles North of the local hospital they were to fly over. There were a lot of people, many with their kids, standing around some of the high points.
Well, I was wrong. Just in the wrong place.
Keep it civil, please....
