The BEST USAF Thunderbirds Stunt Video You’ll Ever See

You Gotta Love These Guys.
There has always been a major debate about who is better. USAF’s Thunderbolts or USN’s Blue Angles? Well, we’re not going to solve that dilemma today as we simply don’t know. They’re both great in our opinion.
We do have to admit that we have been biased in the past, although unintentionally. Ever since we started showing you great stunts we’ve focused on the Blues for some reason. Maybe it was because of their connection to World War II (they started with F6F Hellcats in 1946) or maybe it’s because there’s just more footage of them. Either way, we are committed to digging up any and all cool videos on the Thunderbirds now.
As for a bit of their background, the United States Air Force Thunderbirds became a demonstration squadron on May 25th, 1953. They’re part of the 57th Wing and are based at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, which also trains pilots how to become combat aviators.
As you’ll see in this video (which is extremely well recorded by the way), these aviators know what they’re doing. Their entire demonstration is extremely impressive and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
