By geoffrey baker
2 of the incredible Thunderbirds Air Display Team that flew all the way from America to be with us at RIAT 2017 at Fairford for the 70th anniversary of the American Air Force celebrations and what a fantastic display they put on for us, amazing!
Here they're doing one of their trademark stunts at a speed of over 400mph I'd imagine.
The planes must have been almost touching, there must surely be sensors on the plane? like parking sensors on our cars, or cameras maybe? because the pilots had very little sight of each other's aircraft.
