Ford has introduced a US Air Force Thunderbirds Edition of the Mustang GT. The new tribute edition features an exterior design inspired by the 60th anniversary of the US Air Force Thunderbirds. In case you don’t know, the Thunderbirds have been recognized as the fastest multijet flight demonstration team in the world.

This unique Mustang GT from Ford comes with the same red, white and blue paint scheme similar to the design of F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter aircraft.

The F-16 fighter inspired Mustang GT will be sold at a charity auction at the Experimental Air Association show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin on August 1. Benefits from this charity would go towards the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Young Eagles Program. Launched in 1992, this Young Eagle program provides free flights for young people interested in flights.
