Janson’s New Documentary Takes Inside Look at U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds
March 18, 2008, Harrington Park, NJ... Janson Media today announced the release to worldwide television, VOD, DVD/video, and new media markets of AMERICA’S TEAM: BEING A U.S. AIR FORCE THUNDERBIRD. The Air Force Thunderbirds have been thrilling audiences since the 1950’s. Their awe-inspiring demonstrations are seen by millions of people all over the world. Few, however, get to witness what it takes behind the scenes to safely execute their dazzling air show. This exhilarating and patriotic program allows viewers to join the entire Thunderbird squadron and discover what it takes to be a part of America’s Team.
While only six pilots fly in the air show, there are over 120 support members on the team, ranging from aircraft technicians to public affairs personnel. AMERICA’S TEAM follows the Thunderbirds for an entire air show season, at home in the Nellis Air Force Base near Las Vegas, and on the road across the United States. The documentary includes footage of rarely seen moments, including a “patching ceremony” where an enlisted person becomes a member of the team after weeks of study, as well as the loading and unloading of tons of equipment as the team goes from location to location.
The film also introduces the inspiring story of the first female pilot who joined the ranks of this elite fellowship. Ever since Nicole Malichowski was five years old and went to an air show with her father, she knew she wanted to be a fighter pilot. Not only did she achieve her childhood goal, but has since been selected to become the first female demonstration pilot in the United States.
AMERICA’S TEAM: BEING A U.S. AIR FORCE THUNDERBIRD (1 x 57’) was produced in High Definition by Paul Federick Productions, and is now available to worldwide television, VOD, DVD/video, and new media markets exclusively through Janson Media.
