In 2021, the Thunderbirds unveiled a new performance sequence that was driven almost entirely by entertainment and mission imperatives. It's shorter. It happens much more in front of the audience. It was developed in collaboration with a former Disney executive who spent his career on Disney entertainment projects and programs using some of the same philosophy that Disney uses in its operations. T-Bird #4 and his dad, the former Disney executive, will explain the ideas behind the reimagining of the T-Bird maneuver sequence.
