Watching the Thunderbirds do their fancy flying over the Air Force Academy's fresh graduates is all about finding the best spot to catch the action. Beginning at 10:30 this morning, five bucks gets you a pass for a carload of folks to the grounds of the Western Museum of Mining and Industry (225 North Gate Blvd., wmmi.org). Once there, you can plop down your blanket, sammitches, chips and sody pops, and wait for the 12:30 p.m. (time approximate) demonstration over Falcon Stadium. Says the Air Force: "The team is comprised of selected pilots assigned to demonstrate the coordination, discipline and flying ability that combat-capable pilots require to fulfill their vital role in our nation's defense." — Mary Jo Meade
