You have a problem with the cadet aerobatic team, it doesn't exist so you are correct.

You didn't _say_ USMA, Time. You said "Army". The Army team is the Golden Knights. I don't have any problem with the Black Knights either. Appears you might have a problem though with being corrected.

we have a team like that called the "roulettes"
i think a poll about who is best is pointless, when ur a pilot at that level you are the best of the best at stunt flying. im sure if they all did the same thing, differences would be marginal, what prolly makes the most difference is the amount of media attention they recieve

You can afford to do that because no one believes New Zealand is actually worth the hassle to take.
