Colonel Laura Lenderman, Commander of the 375th Air Mobility Wing, Scott Air Force Base, was there to meet the Thunderbirds and the media representatives. She is pictured here with Thunderbird Leader, Lt. Colonel Jason Heard, enlisted Thunderbirds members, and the base Public Affairs staff.
A media flight was given to Fox 2 News reporter Ayesha Khan by Thunderbird 7, Lt. Colonel Kevin Walsh, in the team's two-seat F-16D. Following the ground preparations and startup, the jet rocketed straight up and out of sight for the flight of a lifetime!
The Aero Experience will have much more coverage of the Scott AFB Centennial Airshow in the coming days. We wish to thank Colonel Lenderman and the Scott AFB Public Affairs staff for their excellent coordination of our visit and superb access for today's coverage.
