Thunderbirds Aerobatic show

I was in Terminal 3 Subang Airport today when i saw THUNDERBIRDs performing an aerobatic show.Lucky i always carry my camera whenever i go.I was told that the airshow will start officially tomorrow at 9 am at SUBANG TUDM AIRBASE.







Below are some facts on THUNDERBIRDs
The Thunderbirds are the air demonstration squadron of the U.S. Air Force(USAF), based at Nellis AFB in Las Vegas, Nevada. The squadron tours the United States and much of the world, performing aerobatic formation and solo flying in specially-marked USAF jet aircraft.
Officers serve a two-year assignment with the squadron, while enlisted personnel serve three to four. Replacements must be trained for about half of the team each year, providing a constant mix of experience. The squadron performs no more than 88 air demonstrations each year and has never canceled a demonstration due to maintenance difficulty.
In addition to their air demonstration responsibilities, the Thunderbirds are part of the USAF combat force and if required, can be rapidly integrated into an operational fighter unit. Since 15 February 1974 the Thunderbirds have been a component of the 57th Wing at Nellis AFB.
