Such a thrill for me to be able to talk with the Thunderbirds upon their arrival thursday afternoon. Especially as an Army brat who grew up watching my dad come and go from the hagar, where he flew Huey's and Chinooks. That created a fascination with anything that flies in me early on.
Just want to give you a heads up, I was right by his plane, so there’s a lot of wind noise. Major Whit Collins is Thunderbird #4, the Slot Pilot.
