Thunderbirds in San Antonio

This is the best air show we have been to ever! The blue and clear sky allows the Thunderbirds to do all their high altitude maneuvers. And the temperature is a very comfortable 75F with gentle breezes.

If you are interested, you can also check out our earlier photgraphs from Thunderbirds and Blue Angels air shows.
