With the Thunderbird's season ending early November at the Nellis AFB Air Show, the team now starts its training all over again with new pilots slowly working their way into the formation. These gorgous photos, shot high over the Nellis Test and Training Range near Creech AFB, gives us an incredible perspective of a world constantly in dramatic three-dimensional motion.

These photos are from Airman Jason Couillard, one of the T-Birds elite cadre of support personnel who make it all happen.
