Do you like watching the Thunderbirds flyover for the Air Force Academy’s Graduation? Have trouble finding a place to watch them that has a great view and is safe? Look no more!
The Western Museum of Mining is honored to be the Academy’s neighbor … and lucky too! Here is why: The Mining Museum is the perfect place to watch the amazing aerial acrobatics of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds.
Bring a picnic lunch, or get something at a food truck, and enjoy your meal by our spring-fed ponds and flowering meadow as you experience the mighty Thunderbirds soar over you! Come early, set up your family picnic, and enjoy the show!
