I just wanted to take this opportunity to say "Thank You!" from the entire Thunderbird Team to all of Team McConnell. Putting on an Open House / Air Show is no small feat, and the Thunderbirds absolutely cannot execute our mission of representing the pride, precision, and professionalism of America's Airmen without your help. During the McConnell Open House, tens of thousands of spectators witnessed our demonstration. That demonstration is not about us, but about all of you - we strive for perfection in every show to represent the way you perfectly execute your mission. Our greatest hope is that all who see the show leave with a powerful sense of pride in America's Airmen, America's Air Force, and America. All of your hard work and incredible attention to detail made that possible. We would like to specifically thank Capt. Nick Motlagh, Master Sgt. Lee Coble, and Airman 1st Class Andrea Salazar for all of their effort to make our operation at McConnell a complete success.

Thank you all again! We are extremely honored and humbled to represent all of you as we travel across this great Nation. Fly, Fight, and Win!
