Thunderbirds - How Fun!




IMG_4117.jpg IMG_4116.jpg



My husband and I went to see the Thunderbird show
by the United States Air Force.

It’s purely an entertainment show. But, the pilots
who fly F-16s are elites among elites.

To see this show, about 35,000 people went to the
air force base in our city.

We missed it, but World War II-era planes and the
Air Force Academy’s Wings of Blue parachute
team performed, too.

The 6 F-16 pilots flying the show performed some
loops, some rolls, and passing and crossing
each other.

One pilot did eight vertical rolls, from 200 to 18,000
feet in 25 seconds.

You may think, “So, what?”. Well, it’s a show
by elite pilots among the U.S. Airforce pilots.

This air show would not tell you that this kind of techniques
will have use in the event of war.

Because, now a days, drones and missiles are
more often used in recent wars.

So, the U.S. Air Force demonstration squadron “Thunderbirds”
may not tell anything about war power, but we should be proud
of the well-trained U.S. pilots that brought us patriotism
and fun.

卓越した技術を持つパイロットが披露するパフォーマンスが多くの人を魅了する様子が伝わってきます。それでも、実際の戦争では、ドローンとかミサイルが使われ事が多いのですね。

戦争が抑止あるいは回避されて,平和な世界になれば良いのに、とニュースを見ては思うこの頃です。
