In preparation for Wednesday’s Air Force Academy graduation, the Thunderbirds will practice their flyover and aerial performance Tuesday.

The team conducted aerial surveys Monday after they arrived.

Tuesday’s schedule has the Thunderbirds practicing flyovers of the Air Force Academy Stadium starting at 1:45 p.m. The flyover is a traditional part of the graduation day hat-toss, when weather permits.

The actual flyover is scheduled to occur at approximately 12:15 p.m. Wednesday, at the end of the graduation ceremony.

You can watch the entire graduation ceremony, including the flyover and the President’s speech, streaming live on KKTV.com Wednesday.
