The United States Air Force Air Demonstration Squadron "Thunderbirds" perform their demonstration at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., March 10, 2022. The Thunderbirds require multiple certifications in order to perform at air shows around the world. Receiving the commander of Air Combat Command's certification was the final step for the 2022 team to be show ready. Now that the certification is complete, the Thunderbirds can officially kickoff the 2022 season to accomplish their mission to ‘Recruit, Retain and Inspire,’ while demonstrating the incredible capabilities of the Air Force’s premier multi-role fighter jet, the F-16 Fighting Falcon.
