The weirdest air show season in memory is wrapping up and all four of the Air Force's tactical jet demonstration teams have converged on Southern Florida for the Fort Lauderdale Air Show that will run from November 21st through the 22nd. Prior to the weekend's festivities, the teams set a little time aside for one heck of a photo mission, joining up behind a C-130 flying off the Sunshine State's coast. With an A-10, F-16, F-22, and F-35 in tow, the quartet posed for dramatic images by flying different formation configurations behind and around the 'Herky Bird." The rare photo flight resulted in some extremely high-impact and gorgeous shots.

The Fort Lauderdale Air Show will mark the end of the season for some of the teams, while others have just an appearance or two left in this bizarre season. We can only hope that next year will be a better one for the air show community, and for the world, for that matter!

Great job to the Air Force's tactical jet demo teams for capturing these amazing shots.

A big thanks to Ryan Chan (@ryankakiuchan)  for the heads up on the images!
