US Air Force – Official Colors are Blue, Black, and Sliver

Notes: This is the last streamer in Tom’s series created to honor the brave members of the United States military. For the project, Tom had created hairwing versions of all of his patterns that were originally tied as featherwing flies. The official blue, black and silver Air Force colors dominate Tom’s design with igneous red and gold pheasant feathers placed to give the illusion of flight.

“We owe our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines a debt of gratitude, and I thank you all for your service.”
