It's a Bird, It's a Plane

It's a Bird, It's a Plane

In February we welcomed a U.S. Air Force Thunderbird F-16 to our facility. While doing some research about our fast flying guests, we made an interesting discovery: according to mythology of indigenous North American Indian cultures, a Thunderbird is considered a 'supernatural' bird of strength and power. Founded and based in America's Southwest, the name certainly fits this elite U.S. Air Force squadron. We're excited that they will be performing their acrobatic aerial maneuvers in the 2011 Boston-Portsmouth Air Show this August 13th and 14th. We would love to see you here for the event. Last year's performance by the Blue Angels was amazing.
