Ground Show, Aerial Performance, Return
2009 AirPower Over Hampton Roads
Langley AFB, Virginia
Sunday April 26, 2009
IN THIS VIDEO, I have combined the Thunderbirds' ground show, aerial performance, and their return to Langley AFB all in one video. You will see the Thunderbirds performing a high show over Langley AFB in their new Block 52 F-16s, as well as a completely revamped flying display, as immediately as the team gets off the ground, they really put the F-16s into their own place. The Pratt & Whitney F100-229 also produces a different pitch in engine sound, which you can clearly pick out in the video. To me, it is reminiscent of the GE F110s that the Block 30, 40, 50, and 60 F-16s have. I had to edit out a lot of the return video because I had to recover some of my belongings that were about to take a twelve-foot plunge from the bleachers (it was only my bag of water).
Like what you've seen? If you are interested in purchasing DVDs of specific aircraft and/or of airshows, interested in anything and everything related to airshows (where the jet teams will show up, all airshow performers, airshow reports from airshows I have attended, previews of airshows I will be attending, etc.), a much more easier to navigate "version" of all of my videos, and/or everything there is related to aviation - including spotting guides to my favorite airports and military bases and aircraft factfiles, please take the time to check out Steve's Airshow World at http://www.stevesairshow.com .
