Randy Ball (MiG17)

F-22 Demonstration Team

Made famous by the Vietnam War, the MiG-17F was the primary enemy aircraft engaged in the skies over Vietnam by U.S. aircraft, such as the A-4,A-7, F-8, B-52, F-100, F-105 and its primary nemesis, the F-4 Phantom II. During that war and up until the F-16 entered service, it was the tightest-turning ďŹ ghter in the world.When production started in the 1950s, its VK-1F engine made it one of the ďŹ rst production jet ďŹ ghters in the world with an afterburner. The MiG-17F #1611 entered service with the Soviet bloc in March 1960 and wasn’t withdrawn from service until May 1990.

Greg Poe started his ying career at an early age and earned his pilot’s license while still a teenager. His ight instructor, John Chambers, introduced him to aerobatics early on and it quickly turned into a passion that continues to this day. Poe’s love of aerobatics led him to enter competitions around the country, which enhanced his skills and eventually led to his ďŹ rst airshow performance in 1992. Shortly after, he became a full time airshow pilot and a main stay on the

Reserve and civilian Airmen serving at home and abroad. It’s from that diverse group of Air Force professionals that the Thunderbirds team is formed. The team’s primary mission is twofold: ďŹ rst, to exhibit the capabilities of modern, warďŹ ghting aircraft and, second, to demonstrate the high degree of skill maintained by Air Force members serving in a variety of career specialties.
