Thunderbird Refuel

High above the farmland of eastern Nebraska a formation of Thunderbirds puts on a small show prior to being refueled. The United States Air Force's premier demonstration team is behind a KC-135 from the Sioux City, Iowa Air National Guard's 185th Air Refueling Wing. The Thunderbirds recently performed at the United States Air Force Academy Graduation on May 26th and are on their way to the Southern Wisconsin Air Fest in Janesville Wisconsin for a Memorial Day weekend performance on May 29 and 30.
