Thunderbirds zoom into Flathead
All eyes were on the sky when the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds flew into the Flathead Valley Thursday afternoon.
Vehicles lined both sides of U.S. 2 near Glacier Park International Airport, watching the F-16 demonstration team soar overhead.
The excitement already being displayed for the elite team is a precursor of what’s to come this weekend as the Mountain Madness Air Show gets underway. It’s been nine years since the last air show in the Flathead Valley, and this year’s show is more special than most because Kalispell’s own Maj. Jason Curtis is the No. 6 opposing solo pilot.
