The United States Air Force Thunderbirds perform during Sunday's Wings Over Wayne 2011.

Sunday's air show crowd was treated to an extra performance by the Air Force Thunderbirds after an in-flight emergency cut their act short.

Seymour Johnson Air Force Base officials confirmed that one of the jets was forced to land -- prompting the rest of the team to pause, before starting again when the errant aircraft was, again, skyworthy.

No further information was available on the nature of the emergency.
