Keep your eyes to the sky... the Air Force Thunderbirds will arrive Monday in Colorado Springs. The group is here to perform their customary flyover at the Air Force Academy graduation.

The aerial demonstration team is scheduled to arrive at Peterson Air Force Base. Then, you'll likely hear them practicing ahead of the graduation ceremony on Wednesday at Falcon Stadium.

The Thunderbirds fly six F-16 fighter jets.

      Shame we (Colorado Springs) don't rate an Air Show like back in the day. On the other hand Peterson isn't a real Air Force Base anyway.
