Thunderbirds Are.... Eeek!

The Air Demonstration of the US Airforce, The Thunderbirds, do not do things by half.  When they graduate after four years of training they like to put on a bit of a show for the folks.  After all, four years is a long time and you don't really want to be thought of as mere cheerleaders of the skies, as it were.  So to mark their transition from cadets to lieutenants, the men and women of The Thunderbirds put their lives in each others hands and proceed to give everyone on the ground a coronary.

Of course, with the age of Photoshop it is easy to believe that a photograph like this is doctored.  Well, ladies and gentlemen - this is for real!
