ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey will participate in an F-16 ride along with the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds on July 23, in Cheyenne, Wyo.

Bailey will take part in a three-hour training and briefing at Cheyenne Regional Airport before his opportunity to experience flight from a fighter pilot’s perspective during a one-hour ride along.

The Thunderbirds is the Air Force’s official demonstration team. Its purpose is to showcase the integrity, selfless service and excellence embodied by American Airmen. Each year, the Thunderbirds team performs in Cheyenne for the city’s “Frontier Days” air show.
