Thunderbird One returns to base after a practice hop.  In the 2009 show season the team transitioned to an updated version of the F-16.  The Block 52s has an upgraded avionics package that brings the Thunderbird aircraft into alignment with the rest of the worldwide F-16 fleet.  Additionally, the more powerful Pratt & Whitney F100-PW-229 engine provides an additional 3,600 lbf of thrust.  Nikon D300 w/80-200mm, processed with Aperture.
