TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

One of the more extreme aerial demonstrations at the D-M Thunder and Lightning over Arizona is the Red Bull Air Force team, and its helicopter acrobatics.

According to helicopter pilot Chuck Aaron, this is the only helicopter in the U.S. that is capable of doing the rolls and flips seen during the show. Aaron, who has logged more than 20,000 hours of flight time, used to be a news helicopter pilot. 

Our own Kevin Adger got a first-hand look at all the Red Bull helicopter could do in a 20 minute flight.
