USAF Thunderbirds
Millions of people have witnessed the Thunderbirds demonstrations, and in turn, they’ve seen the pride, professionalism, and dedication of hundreds of thousands of Airmen serving at home and abroad. Each year brings another opportunity of the team to represent those who deserve the most credit: the everyday, hard-working Airmen voluntarily serving America and defending freedom.

Shockwave presents the World Famous SHOCKWAVE JET TRUCK! The baddest/most impressive jet ground vehicle on the planet! Three times the smoke, three times the fire, three times the noise, and three times the horsepower! THREE afterburning J34-48 jet engines totaling 36,000 HP. SHOCKWAVE is the Guinness Book World Record holder for the fastest jet truck in the world at 376 MPH.

FA 18 Super Hornet Tac Demo
See a VFA-122 Super Hornet in action. The Tactical Demonstration, or "Tac Demo" team, flies the single-seat F/A-18E and two-seat F/A-18F as close to the "edge of the envelope" as safety and prudence allow. The routine highlights the Rhino's maneuverability and slow-speed handling characteristics and has been very well received around the country.
