Looking for Thunderbird archival help

Post by Tbird0584 » Mon Sep 13, 2021 11:26 am

In June of 1984 the Thunderbirds made a stop and show in The Netherlands at Soesterberg airbase. This I only recently found out being 2.5 months after my birth. I was wondering if anyone can help match names to jet number/airframe serial for that specific timeframe, as I am looking to build scale models of a few airframes.

#1 is Lt. Col. Larry Stellmon
#5 I want to say is Capt. John Bostick

Wondering if 81-0679 was also part of the ensemble and if so what number it had.

Thanks for letting me join.

Welcome! I believe you have the correct 1984 pilots for the positions you mentioned. I’m by no means an expert at serial numbers, but these links might help you:
