IAmA combat fighter pilot and current commander of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. Ask Me Anything.
I’m Lt. Col. Greg Moseley, “Thunderbird 1,” lead pilot and commander of the Thunderbirds, your U.S. Air Force’s official jet demonstration team (www.afthunderbirds.com). My job is to lead more than 120 people who wear the Thunderbirds uniform, charged with demonstrating American air power and representing our fellow Airmen to millions of people around the world.
Normally, we travel to dozens of air shows between March and November every year. This year, unfortunately, we are one of the many military units impacted by sequestration. All of our flying hours have been cut, and all scheduled 2013 performances have been cancelled. We expect to get back in the air in October, which is when we’ll begin the training for the 2014 air show season.
I’m not here to talk politics ... I'm just hoping to share info about the Thunderbirds mission and my Air Force experience. With that in mind, you can ask me anything.

UPDATE Thanks for letting me participate in IAmA, it was a great time and our team looks forward to participating more in the near future
