Its is a bit shocking to say the least. The Thunderbirds are an elite unit so you would expect that the Commander would be the best of the best.
I'm starting to wonder if the never ending wars, the increased op tempo everywhere else, and the disastrous budget sequester is starting to show in
the forms of obvious equipment issues, as well as qualified personnel leaving and the services perhaps not having the pick of the litter for command
The USN has shown already its having issues, The Marines as well. I love airshows and I love both demonstration teams, but perhaps its time for a
general stand down of all non essential activities and start fixing the issues
