A United States Air Force Thunderbird jet will pay a brief visit to AirVenture Oshkosh late Sunday afternoon, July 26, where it will be on display for most of Opening Day July 27, then depart mid-afternoon. Thunderbird #8, a two-seat Lockheed-Martin F-16C, will arrive at approximately 5:45 p.m. Sunday following the elite squadron's weekend performance at the Milwaukee Air Show.

Bringing the plane to Oshkosh will be pilot Maj. Anthony Mulhare, USAF, and crew chief Tech Sgt. Matt Inman. AirVenture attendees will have an opportunity to see the aircraft on static display until its scheduled departure, at 2:30 p.m., just before showcase flights begin, according to Joe Schumacher, AirVenture director of flight operations.

The Thunderbirds are based at Nellis Air Force Base, Las Vegas, Nevada.
