Imagine the smell of jet fuel in the air, the hot summer sun beating down on your shoulders and the deafening roar of an F-16 Fighting Falcon taking off.

There’s not much that can top the thrill and excitement of an aerial demonstration by the Air Force Thunderbirds, except maybe a view of the show from the back seat.
