"...Capt. Stephen Del Bagno, 58th Fighter Squadron, Eglin AFB, Florida, has been selected as Thunderbird No. 4, the team’s slot pilot. Like Graeff, Del Bagno will also fly in close formation with the other demonstration pilots, just aft of the No. 1 aircraft and between the two wingmen. Del Bagno will be the first F-35 pilot to serve on the team and will replace Maj. Nick Krajicek...."
