Six Thunderbird planes fly in Delta formation in preparation for the “Delta Bottom-Up Pass” and “Delta Roll”. Thunderbirds are Lockheed Martin F-16C Fighting Falcon jets that can pull 9gmaneuvers and reach of a speed in excess of Mach 2 and carry up to 6 head seeking Sidewinder air to air missiles. Of course for this display there were no missiles and they kept the planes under the speed of sound so as to not break any windows. Learn more about the F16-C here.
