This is not collectible.
With a population of 3.4 million people, Phoenix, ARIZONA provides big-city appeal against a unique desert backdrop. In between your studies, enjoy outdoor sports, professional sporting events, shopping, spas, restaurants, museums, theater or ballet. Within this city of Phoenix, lies a small town called Glendale - which holds a business school - the name:
'Thunderbird School of Global Management' was chartered on April 8, 1946, by Lieutenant General Barton Kyle Yount, the Commanding General of the US Army Air Training Command. The school grew out of the rich history of its campus grounds – Thunderbird Field, a historic airbase steeped in multicultural tradition where American, Canadian, British and Chinese pilots trained during World War II.
General Yount's dream was to create the first US-based international business school focused on growing and educating international business leaders with an education firmly rooted in cultural customs as well as sound business and management practices.
But this school has a unique history - a history of creating Thunder couples :)
Yes this is a romantically inspired travel collectible. Two unique thunderbird students, from opposite corners of the world met for the first time in Thunderbird. 3 years later (and on the release date of this TB), these two beautiful people got engaged on top of a fuming Mt. Etna in Sicily, Italy (niether are from Italy btw - one is Indian living in the Middle East and the other one, a rare Latvian).
This is the spirit of Thunderbird in itself - be a citizen of the world - and multiply these citizens ofcourse :-P
This TB needs to be placed in the vicinity of the Thunderbird School of Global Management (cross of 59th & Thunderbird), where this couple met, lived, traveled, and even got to see a green alien. Yes this is a dual TB tagged together and never to separate.
