The Thunderbirds Then and Now, 8-10 p.m. – The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds have flown in front of more than 300 million people since their first performance on May 25, 1953. The unit was activated at Luke Air Force Base, Arizona, and took on the name “Thunderbirds,” influenced in part by the strong Native American culture and folklore from the Southwestern United States. Following the Korean War, the unit’s mission was to show the American public the safety, reliability, and maneuverability of jet-engine aircraft, which was still new at the time. Five generations of Thunderbird pilots will appear on this night to be remembered.
