You're probably thinking of more western european aircraft like the eurofighter typhoon. The Russian Sukhoi SU-27 Flanker is pretty good too. If there's any airshows near where you live, go to one. YOu might find some aerobatic demo teams there. Seing them live is like nothing else. Or, type the names of one of the teams listed in the poll into a search engine.

Does anyone know whether the government have stopped being and halted their plans to scrap the Red Arrows, along with most of the RAF?
Ha! I would be surprised if there any of armed forces left by the next millenium, the way our government behave. What worries me is Britain is staring 1939 right down the throat - again. We are lucky that nobody has noticed - yet!

I agree, Red Arrows is the best aerobatic team in the world.But They are using the hawk aircraft that is the best aircraft for the aerobatic games,I think.Because hawk is a smaller, also the trainer aircraft and using not hard.To maneuver with hawk is pretty easy.

Imagine, How is to use F5 fighters for aerobatic games?

Turkish stars are using F5 fighters.According to me, it is harder job than the others.

Look at the links.

The Philippine Air Force "Blue Diamonds"

Most of you may not have even heard about them but they were the best during their time.

I think he might be referring to the Mig 29. A few Mig 29 demonstrators were over at the Farnborough Air Show a few years back, Farnborough being a big air show in the UK, and they impressed a lot of people with their ability to fly backwards and all that stuff.

biased i know, but kiwi red.


flying a4 skyhawks they were the only team to do a "plugged barrel roll"
a formation move done while connected with buddy-buddy refueling lines



but now that team is gone and we have the very precise red checkers (admittedly flying the very slow CT-4 basic trainer)
