The Mane Six having a picnic.
All the ponies are waiting beside Rainbow Dash's mailbox?
has an anxious look on her face. That's not common of her.
Everypony's eyes on the Pie.
Turning around for another round. Eh?
Pinkie Pie just can't wait
There's no helping it. The mail always ends up being late whenever they fire Derpy.
Why are you even worrying? You're not the one who's going.
Pinkie is anxious to know whether Rainbow Dash got in or not.
Nopony is ever-so more confident than Rainbow Dash.
She knows she'll make the Wonderbolts.
Pinkie displaying reality of situations? No way!
Where's my money, Le-Dash-ski?
This is Pinkie's serious face.
Applejack eating a red apple.
That apple better not be poison joked.
Don't lose yer hat now Applejack.
How could I not get invited to the Wonderbolts Academy?
The ponies, all watching Rainbow Dash.
Pause for dramatic effect...
You guys are so gullible!
The foe's Pinkie Pie used Rollout!
Pinkie Pie hugging tightly.
Pinkie teases the shippers
Pinkie practicing her level 3 super from Fighting is Magic
A little too tight Pinkie.
Gah, do I really need this?
I kinda need to get going...
Ahh, I forgot how to stand on all fours.
I'll show them, who the best filer is!
Rainbow Dash is super confident in herself.
Ship tease, ship tease everywhere
Rainbow dashes by, while taking her saddlebag.
Off to become Top Feather!
See ya in a week, Rainbow Dash!
Rainbow Dash, flying off towards the Wonderbolts academy.
Rainbow dashing off to the Wonderbolt Academy.
"DON'T FORGET TO WRITE!!!!"
A few more decibels, and we can add it to our list of WMDs.
"Do you think she heard me?"
Just casually flying around. No big.
Soldiers of the arial space.
And they take off for their veteran training.
Rainbow Dash looks around the Academy.
Left, right, left, right!
What are these credits doing here?
Star Hunter doing a pull up.
Midnight Strike's first appearance.
She'll make a great Wonderbolt someday
Aww yeah, this is what I need.
That's right - Bulk Biceps is in training to be a Wonderbolt.
In comes the Drill Master.
This is my business face.
"Think you got what it takes to be an elite flyer."
You are awesome. Deal with it.
Why is your mane so awesome?
Not as tough as he looks...
Spitfire is sizing up Bulk Biceps.
"You're so ugly, you could be a modern art masterpiece!"
"You'll probably quit after the first day!"
"No ma'am, I never quit ma'am"
"Bet you couldn't fly past the first flag post!"
"Try me ma'am!"
Note: Don't ever try this with a real drill instructor
Cute Rainbow Dash is cute.
"Let me show you what I've got, ma'am"
One pony mouths off, the whole team suffers.
Rainbow and Lightning Dust zooming by Cloudchaser
Rainbow and lightning contrails
Is she talking to me or to her??
Rainbow is winking at Lightning Dust! Mmm...
Spitfire yelling (she does that a lot in this episode)
Rainbow and Lightning smiling.
"for a couple of newbies."
Rainbow Dash and Lightning Dust.
I can see where this is going.
Why don't we go over to Twilight's?
At least, she's giving it some thought.
....And, some more thought.
Even though she agreed to it, she still seems uncertain.
The letter comes while I'm not here?!
Then, Rainbow Dash will probably be worried when I don't write back!
I need to stay by the mailbox's side.
Now for your very first lesson.
Rainbow and Lightning being confident.
Lightning Dust standing proud.
The Rainbow Factory is in the background...
Poor mare being dragged back to line.
Rainbow and Lightning want to go next.
"That's an academy record."
"I make everything look easy."
"Can you put the Dizzitron at maximum speed?"
"I wanna push my limits."
"Okay, you asked for it."
Turn it up to skull with wings and lightning bolts
Dang! Hope she didn't break anything.
... But they're too cool to care for long
Staring deep into Lightning Dust's eyes...
An adorable shot of Rainbow Dash.
They don't look too happy
Everypony checking the list.
Rainbow asking which one of these lucky gals is her wingpony.
Cloudchaser looks like she wants to giggle.
"You might want to check the wall."
Talk about a rough excuse me.
This isn't what Rainbow wanted.
Rainbow Dash and her new wingpony.
Putting on a forced smile.
Pony version of sign with an X
Signing Autographs. What a job!
So that's what horse shoes are used for...
An impressive imitation of Gendo Ikari and Mr. Burns.
Moping in disappointment.
Today's exercise will be 'Flag Hunt'!
I think Slabchunks is up to something here...
This challenge will be difficult.
Smoothly down into the ravine!
Rainbow Dash clips her wing on the log.
Spitfire is rubbish at health and safety!
"You're fine." Says the one who didn't hurt her wing.
Rainbow and Spitfire looking at each other.
This is my happy face. Deal with it.
Feeling Spitfire's serious gaze.
No I must check on the mailbox, I won't give up.
Ninety-five hours of wait on the wall...Ninety-five hours of wait...
Everypony checking on a distraught Pinkie Pie.
Rarity's and Fluttershy's faces make everything cuter.
Where did you come from!? We were just watching you over there!
Pinkie Pie apparently took a lesson from Dio Brando
Back to normal business Pinkie.
Sigh of relief for everyone.
Pinkie appearing inside the mailbox
AJ looking annoyed to the fans.
You people are lucky that you don't have to put up with this 24/7
Good to see that Pinkie is smiling at least.
"I wouldn't mind a little trip."
Looks like everypony is accounted for.
Tell us all why we put up with this!?
Lightning winking at Rainbow
That wink is not a good sign.
Rainbow sees Cloudchaser and Yeah Pegasus crash into a cloud.
Lightning Dust doesn't seem to care.
Talk about an unsubtle expression.
Avoiding clouds like a pro.
"I can't get around them!"
"We can still fly completely in sync and blow Spitfire's mind."
Hearing more of Lightning's woes.
"Now's our chance to pass these slowpokes!"
Creating drag to slow their descent.
"And in record time, too!"
A little guilt in Rainbow Dash.
"Why don't you two go hit the mess hall early"
...said no drill instructor ever
Rainbow Dash removing her goggles.
Thunderlane doing a ninja kick on a cloud.
Cutting through like nopony's business.
Rainbow Dash, why you give in to peer pressure.
Pinkie sure looks really adorable with the face she's making.
The twister catches the mane 5
Twilight has a funny looking expression but the current situation will beg to differ.
