This year, in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Air Force, the UPS crew flying in the pre-Thunder show will be made up of Air Force veterans, from maintenance to the pilots.
The crew talked with WDRB News on Tuesday about what spectators can expect to see when their Boeing 767 cargo plane soars across the Ohio River.
Capt. Steve England, observer, said the team takes the plane out to practice what their profile will be for the big day. Next, they'll repeat it with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for final approval before practicing again next Thursday before Saturday's show.
