Holly Thompson Memorable Moments
‘’There are so many meaningful stories out there, but I would have to say the most incredible story involved the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, and I actually got to fly with them! Oh, how scary, but oh, how exciting!
They even prepped me on what to do if we had to eject – not the words you want to hear before the flight. I even got to “pilot” the F-16 jet myself for a few seconds.
They are true professionals who really know their job and do it with great precision and great enthusiasm, and I was impressed!’’
