I'm on our airshow working group here and they are coming. It blows my mind how they are treated. They are a military unit but have requirements that make them worse than Mariah Carey. On top of that, they continue that attitude when not even with the group anymore. Had a coworker at Lakenheath who came from them and he drove a white hummer with a huge tbird sticker on the hood and his spare tire cover on the back was a huge tbird symbol as well. When we would go to the gym, he had a cute little tbird gym bag that he always took with him.
I'm sure they aren't all like that but every one that I have met has been a douche canoe.
The travel would be great as well as being treated like a rock star but the super scripted routines and keeping everything shiny would suck.
