The Air Force Thunderbirds have arrived in Colorado Springs. The squadron of F-16 aerial demonstration jets will perform for the graduation ceremony at the US Air Force Academy on Wednesday.
The pilots conducted a re-enlistment ceremony for about 20 airmen at Peterson Air Force Base.
Dr. David Benke, a teacher from Deer Creek Middle School in Littleton, will also take a ride with the Thunderbirds this evening. Dr. Benke tackled a gunman at the school back in February.
