The former Air Force Colonel and astronaut Buzz Aldrin (age 87) flew on the back seat of Thunderbird #7 Lt. Col. Kevin Walsh in the diamond formation over Launch Complex 39A at the Kennedy Space Center. He became the oldest person to fly with the US Air Force Thunderbirds.

He flew 66 combat missions in F-86 Sabres and shot down two Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15 aircraft. The June 8, 1953, issue of Life magazine featured gun camera photos taken by Aldrin of one of the Soviet pilots ejecting from his damaged aircraft.
