12/12/2012 - LANGLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Va.  -- The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, the Air Force's premier demonstration team, has released their 2013 show season schedule and will headline the 2013 Air Power Over Hampton Roads airshow and open house scheduled for May 3 through 5, 2013 at Langley Air Force Base, Va.

The Thunderbirds perform for people all around the world, displaying the pride, precision and professionalism of American Airmen. In every hour-long demonstration, the team combines years of training and experience with an attitude of excellence to showcase what the Air Force is all about.

The sharply choreographed, drill-style ground ceremony kicks off the demonstration by showcasing the attention to detail and esprit de corps that defines our enlisted members. As the jets take to the skies and fly only a few feet from wingtip to wingtip, the crowd gets a glimpse of the awesome skills and capabilities that all fighter pilots must possess. The solo pilots integrate their own loud and proud routine, exhibiting some of the maximum capabilities of the F-16 Fighting Falcon - a highly-maneuverable, compact, multi-role fighter aircraft.

The air show is slated to host a mix of military and civilian performances and static displays. Like previous open houses, the 2013 air show will be kicked-off the Friday prior to the event. The Air Power Over Hampton Roads schedule, including times and acts, will be released as the event draws closer.
