The last time we had the Thunderbirds or Open house in Del Rio, Tx was 10 years ago when I took these photographs. All are invited, no weapons and guidelines are on the website ( They will have 2 areas open One on the flight line best for photography and another for tailgating (cars, coolers & BBQ grills allowed). There will be no connection between the two areas so this event is for the whole family including children. There will be food and drink vendors near the flight line for purchase. Bring sunscreen and big brim hat.

I usually don't go to shows like this because I don't like large crowds. We have the blue angels coming this year and will stay away from it even though one can hopefully get beautiful action pictures like this. I just enjoy what you guys post and can enjoy the gorgeous pictures like this. A beautiful look with lovely colors and amazing details Emile. #11687378
