A Thunderbird Comes to Town

In early February, two members of the Air Force Thunderbirds arrived at the Kansas City Downtown Airport for a press conference concerning this summer's airshow at the field, at which the Thunderbirds are performing. They arrived on a FRIGID, windy Wednesday afternoon - Jim and I both scooted out of work (me, coming straight from the "other" airport after getting back in town from Atlanta) to see them arrive. We've been asked to be on the hospitality committee for the Thunderbirds during the airshow this year, and it's an understatement to say we're super excited!
I was huddling inside and missed the landing, but caught some shots of the jet taxiing up to the Airline History Museum. It wasn't a great day to shoot outside anyhow - snow, lots of brown everywhere, and a low, dingy, grey sky. I can't wait for color to return to the landscape...
