Even the name says “bird”!
The baseball all star game is down in Minneapolis, and the USAF Thunderbirds are using our airport as a staging location for their flyover. It takes the Thunderbirds just 15 minutes to fly down to Minneapolis (175 miles). I was lucky enough to watch and photograph the Thunderbirds taking off, and had just enough time to drive home (19 miles … rural roads at 55 mph) to watch them fly over my house near Lake Superior. They had traveled 350 miles during the same period! Learn more via Wikipedia (official site linked above)
