Illustration for article titled Not Photoshopped -- These Two Planes Really Are Flying Like This

It's called a Calypso Pass. That's when two jets fly in a mirror image pattern like this, often only inches apart. A few weeks ago, two U.S. Air Force Thunderbird F-16 Fighting Falcons did just that. Show me a drone with this kind of style.


The Thunderbirds performed for a huge crowd on March 23, at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida, and the Calypso Pass was just one of their moves.
