Rare and unique 8-ship flyover from Thunderbirds over Los Angeles

On May 15, The United States Air Force Thunderbirds performed a unique and very rare 8-ship formation flyover at Los Angeles to honor their lost teammate and healthcare workers also.
After the regular six-ship formation flyover at Los Angeles, The Thunderbirds formed a rare eight-ship formation to fly over Maj. Stephen ‘Cajun’ Del Bagno parents’ house. He died on a crash occurred on Apr 4, 2018, at Nevada Test and Training Range during a routine aerial demonstration training flight.

The Thunderbirds hand out a lot more numbered flight suits than the Blue Angels.

I went to their website to see how many on the current team but it looks like somebody forgot to pay the internet bill again:

For a couple of years the Blue Angels website gave a 'bad certificate' warning but someone under the age of 25 figured out what was wrong and got it fixed.
