That's the main thing I noticed about it. I didn't even notice any of the differences that STRIKER mentioned. :oops:

Looks like a duffle bag... I'm guessing this is them flying into a show site, or getting ready to leave or something.

You're right, the seat covers are red.

I doubt he just arrived or is going anywhere (in the air) though, since he's not even strapped in and usually you'd see them taxi out with the mask hanging to the side of the helmet (before the EPU is started).

Alright, so who can find Capt. Kristin Hubbard's callsign first :!:

U.S. Air Force Capt. Kristin Hubbard, a pilot, checks the landing gear on an F-16 Fighting Falcon during an exercise on Osan Air Base, South Korea, July 21, 2008.
The readiness exercise tests the abilities of the airmen to execute combat operations, receive follow-on forces and defend the base from attack.

These were listed as "unknown" in a female Viper Driver gallery. ;)

The callsign "Fierce" is so original!, LOL, and I suppose the callsign "Stall" is too since that is my alter-ego! LOL

What's being subtly pointed out here is this isn't a "where'd you get your callsign" thread. This is the "USAF Thunderbirds" forum...and every post in the thread was referencing the real TB...

Who will post the 2011 Slot and Right Solo's callsigns here first? We have a pretty good hunch, but if anyone spots a good photo somewhere let us know.

I was wondering when you were going to update this. ;)

I should be going to Langley again next month so I'll see if I can get some clear shots of them.
