The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds operated the F-100C from 1956 until 1964. After briefly converting to the F-105 Thunderchief, the team flew F-100Ds from July 1964 until November 1968.

In this film from 1959 we see the Thunderbirds flying in formation, low level passes, in cockpit views and much more. The original source footage had no audio so I have added a generic jet engine sound for some background ambiance.


In the archives: flying with the USAF Thunderbirds in 2014.
