If #2 was a little forward, the formation would be too perfect to be true. The aircraft would be piloted by Gods instead of humans.

Wow ! only one radar signature but ...surprise ! There are more people at the "party" than expected. I lift my hat to salute those Top Guns of the acrobatic air shows world

That is one formation, I've seen the red arrows do that before and it is heat-wrenching to watch!

Absolutely amazing!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue April 18, 2006:
This is not Photoshopped - I've never seen the Angels do this but I have several similar photos that I took of the Thunderbirds doing something very similar at Mildenhall in 1998 (I think - it was the US Air Force 50th birthday show and their only European appearance that year, I do know that). For some reason European teams don't go in for this kind of "welded wing" flying, which made it all the more memorable to see when the THunderbirds did it. Full marks to these pilots for the skill displayed!

A visitor from Morocco posted Sun September 18, 2005:
The positions of the aircrafy is really impressing and we almost think that one is touching the other ...
But the quality of photo is quite average
