What's That Up In The Sky???

So I was shopping for a few large items at Sam's Club this afternoon (Sam's doesn't sell small packages of anything) and the place kept shaking with the roar of jets flying over.

Flying really low. Really loud.

Oh yeah, probably the Thunderbirds practicing for the big Air Show on Saturday.

When I pushed my cart out the door, suddenly zooming from my left, right in front of me, the whole flock roared past at about 1,000 miles per hour. They were clustered in a tight formation VERY close together. I think I saw faces in the cockpits. Yikes. That's impressive.

Hung around for a bit but they didn't come back as a group over the Sam's lot. I'm sure they were saving that for a final practice pass low over the air base.

I drove away carefully because shoppers were staring upward, weaving and wandering all around, totally ignoring cars moving slowly past them at .000000001 mach speed.
