U.S. Air Force Academy Falconry
The Air Force Academy's Class of 1959, the first to graduate from the Academy, chose the falcon as its mascot Sept. 25, 1955, feeling that it best characterized the combat role of the United States Air Force. Falcons tour the United States with members of the Cadet Wing's falconry program, attending airshows and college sports events. (Original U.S. Air Force photo/David R. Armer)
