4th Annual Air & Space Photo Contest
Thunderbirds Calypso Pass

Thunderbirds 5 and 6 perform the Calypso Pass at EAA Airventure in 2014. The goal of the figure is to make the two aircraft look like a mirror image of each other. There are an amazing variety of factors that determine if the figure "looks" right including where the viewer is standing in relation to the jets. This is the most perfect display of that figure I have ever seen.
