The Blue Angels or the Thunderbirds. Which team is better. I have seen the Thunderbirds and there great but honestly I think the Blue Angles are better. But don't take my opinion. You deside. The Thunderbirds are made up of 6 F16C (single seat)and 2 F16D (Dual seat) Fighting Falcons with 3 spare F16C Falcons. The Blue Angels are made up of 6 F/A18A (Single seat)and 2 F/A18B (Dual seat)Hornets, A C130T Hercules (Nicknamed Fat Albert) with 4 Spare F/A18A Hornets.
