Keesler says Robert Goldsmith, a member of the Biloxi Fire Department, will experience the high performance capabilities of the F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft, as well as meet the men and women on the Thunderbirds team who fly, maintain and support them.

The Thunderbirds are currently touring in their 56th year as the Air Force’s premier jet demonstration team.
