The Thunderbirds are the air demonstration squadron of the U.S.Air Force (USAF), based at Nelis AFB in Las Vegas, Nevada. The squadron tours the United States and much of the world, performing aerobatic formation and solo flying in specially-marked USAF jet aircraft.

In addition to their air demonstration responsibilities, the Thunderbirds are part of the USAF combat force and if required, can be rapidly integrated into an operational fighter unit.Since February 15, 1974 the Thunderbirds have been a component of the 57th Wing at Nellis AFB.
