Our mission is to reenact the aerial demonstration of the USAF Thunderbirds, past and present. This includes adhering to the real world radio calls, maneuver parameters and procedures, professionalism, and unbelievable attention to detail, a trademark the USAF Thunderbirds have been known for throughout its history since 1953.
The Virtual Thunderbirds, founded in 2004, is the original squad to first reenact the Thunderbirds in a flight simulator while performing formation flying and precision aerobatics. We are dedicated to accurately showcase the flying skill of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. Over the years we’ve acquired a wealth of knowledge about the real team and done copious amounts of research in order to perform the air shows flown by the USAF Thunderbirds on our computers via online multiplayer in real time. This has been no small feat, and in the process we’ve come in contact with some truly amazing people, alumni and friends, colleagues, pilots and aviation enthusiasts alike whom share our passion.
