Beschreibung

At the base of the Rocky Mountains, a new military academy was being planned, and the United States Air Force Academy needed a mascot. Not just any mascot, but one that embodied the U.S. Air Force's primary mission to fly and to fight. The first class to graduate from the academy, the Class of 1959, felt that the speed, courage and powerful flight of the fierce-looking falcon best symbolized the purpose of the United States Air Force. When the Academy's cadets chose the falcon to be their mascot, they broke new ground in the long history of college and university mascots. The falcon was the first collegiate mascot--and a wild creature at that--to perform at sports events, free and untethered.
