US Air Force Thunderbirds

I had the opportunity this afternoon to attend the Cocoa Beach Airshow which takes place right on the beach at Cocoa Beach, FL. The closing performers where the US Air Force Thunderbirds.

 

This is my favorite sort of venue for an airshow with everything happening along the beach and everyone just spread out with their blankets and umbrellas. The most unusual thing I saw was a large condominium style cruise ship was leaving Port Everglades and they set up offshore for the whole show so the folks onboard the ship where able to watch the whole show from their floating home on the sea.
