The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds demonstration team arrived Oct. 26 at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph in anticipation for the 2015 JBSA Air Show and Open House taking place Oct. 31 and Nov. 1.

The Thunderbirds begin their ground show rehearsal with a reenlistment ceremony at 1:25 p.m. today and will perform for the public at 3 p.m. Oct. 31 and Nov. 1.
