Long Description:
This display can only be seen when arriving, or leaving Air Force football games. This is a tribute to the "World's foremost airial demonstration team- The Thunderbirds."

The T-38 Talon was designed in the mid 1950's, and flew for the first time on March 10, 1959. It was used as a training plane because the Air Force had no need for a small fighter at the time, and is still used today. It was the worlds first supersonic trainer, and was even used to train some astronauts.
