The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds Headline Huge 2023 Air Show in Kentucky
The 2023 Owensboro Air Show is coming up this weekend and it will again be headlined the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. The very first time the Thunderbirds came to town way back in 2015, I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to ride along with them.
I have tried to explain over and over again just how exhilarating that ride was, but I always feel like my play-by-play fails to do it justice. So, watch this video from the inside the jet instead. We had a GoPro and we put together a highlight reel of the flight.
The Thunderbirds will again be flying over the skies downtown when the Owensboro Air Show returns for the first time since 2021. Joining the Thunderbirds will be a star-studded lineup of performers. found videos of each one to give you an idea of what you can except when the show flies off the ground September 15th, 16th and 17th!
