Thunderbirds are coming back
NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - The popular Thunderbirds Demonstration Team will begin flying again.
They have been grounded since April because of forced budget cuts.
But thanks to about 200-million dollars from congress the pilots will get to resume practice with the aircraft.
They will not be participating in air shows.
They will only fly enough to stay proficient.
The grounding affected about one-third of the Air Force's active-duty combat aircraft, including the Blue Angels.
