Every since I was little, my family and I would always be sure to come down to the AC strip during the Atlantic City Airshow to check out everything that our great American Air-Force has to offer.

Also because my father's dying wish is to fly in one of the Thunderbird jets...
So the air show allows him to live that fantasy, vicariously.

Now celebrating its 15th year, the 2017 Atlantic City Airshow will return to the skies above the beautiful free beaches and Boardwalk in Atlantic City THIS Wednesday, August 23, 2017.  And to my Dad's expectations, the 177th Fighter Wing will be hosting the United States Air Force Thunderbirds Demonstration Team during the 2017 Atlantic City Air Show!

But I think my Dad is going to freak out because today, I get to TOUCH the USAF Thunderbirds and interview the Demonstration Team Pilots!

The fact that I have the opportunity to even get close to these planes that I've been watching since I was a little girl, is going to be surreal--for me AND my father!

But I want to be sure to ask all the right questions that South Jersey wants to know about our amazing Thunderbird spectacular and the pilots inside!

So what would YOU like to know about the Thunderbirds? Comment below with your questions!

I'll be sure to give a you a shout out in our video that we make with our amazing and fearless Thunderbird pilots!
