MOJAVE, Calif. (KABC) -- The U.S. Air Force's Thunderbirds were spotted flying over the High Desert on Tuesday afternoon.

The Thunderbirds perform for people all around the world, including in Southern California.

The Thunderbirds are scheduled to make an appearance at the Pacific Airshow in Huntington Beach, which runs from Sept. 30 to Oct. 2. You can watch the aerial event streaming live only on Hulu.
