It's quite scenic though. My father sure loved New Zealand when he was there during WWII. There and Australia as well. Always wanted to go back. I'm very happy he was finally able to do so the year before he died. I have a dear friend in New Zealand and hope to visit him there someday myself.

I've seen both the Blue Angels and the Snowbirds fly before but none of the others. I can't really put in an educated vote, but I'm still going to say the Snowbirds.

I have only seen the Indian Air Force's 'Suryakiran' (sunray), and helicopter aerobatic team 'Sarang', perform, so I cannot comment on the other air forces. But I guess an aerobatic team of any air force is quite good. Only the best air forces have these teams anyway.
The Suryakiran team used to fly the Hunters earlier, but they fly the Indian made

TURKISH STARS IS THE ONLY AEROBATIC TEAM IN THE WORLD WITH 8 SUPERSONIC AIRCRAFT (NF5).
Turkish Stars is performing their air shows with 900 kms/h. If you watch some Turkish Stars air show, then you will feel that the others is LIKE SLOW MOTION.
Best tight formations and manuevres are presented by Turkish Stars till now.
The BEST AEROBATIC SHOW IN THE WORLD TILL NOW IS:
Turkish Stars - (AirPower09 Zeltweg Austria 2009)
AirPower09 Day 1 F 53 Tiger Turkish Stars Part.2

After watching this video, you can see that the aerobatic teams of other countries CANNOT BE IN THE SAME CLASS WITH TURKISH STARS. There are GIANT DIFFERENCE
with TURKISH STARS and the OTHERS.

BEST AEROBATIC TEAM OF THE WORLD IS TURKISH STARS.

The Blues' fastest pass is 1200 km/h - don't talk trash unless you have all the facts

COMPARISON OF FRECCE TRICOLORI & TURKISH STARS

Frecce Tricolori use Aermacchi MB-339 PAN (max speed: 898 km/h; NOT SUPERSONIC) whereas Turkish Stars use NF5 (max speed: 1700 km/h; SUPERSONIC). If one watches 4 or 5 videos of Turkish Stars first and then s/he watches Frecce Tricolori, s/he feels as if s/he is watching A SLOW MOTION VIDEO; s/he cannot endure to watch 1-minute video of Frecce Tricolori since HUMAN PSYCHOLOGY CANNOT ENDURE A SLOW MOTION VIDEO OF MORE THAN 1-MINUTE. COMPARING TURKISH STARS AND FRECCE TRICOLORI is like COMPARING HORSE AND DONKEY.

COMPARISON OF RED ARROWS & TURKISH STARS

Red Arrows use Hawk T1A (max speed: 1037 km/h; NOT SUPERSONIC) whereas Turkish Stars use NF5 (max speed: 1700 km/h; SUPERSONIC). If one watches 4 or 5 videos of Turkish Stars first and then s/he watches Red Arrows, s/he feels as if s/he is watching A SLOW MOTION VIDEO; s/he cannot endure to watch 1-minute video of Red Arrows since HUMAN PSYCHOLOGY CANNOT ENDURE A SLOW MOTION VIDEO OF MORE THAN 1-MINUTE. COMPARING TURKISH STARS AND RED ARROWS is like COMPARING HORSE AND DONKEY.
Also, (anyway, for those who wish to see a small comparison):
Look at the videos of BOTH Red Arrows and Turkish Stars to see the difference:

Red Arrows : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qT3J-knLSY

Variants (Matrix, Tight helix climbing etc. as well as Delta, Victor, Diamond, etc.) of Turkish Stars is richer than the Thunderbirds (Classics: Delta, Victor, Diamond, etc.)

COMPARISON OF BLUE ANGELS & TURKISH STARS

Turkish Stars is the only aerobatic team of the world that can make tight helix climbing!
Variants (Matrix, Tight helix climbing etc. as well as Delta, Victor, Diamond, etc.) of Turkish Stars is richer than the Blue Angels (Classics: Delta, Victor, Diamond, etc.)

A. Blue Angelsí tightness is bad when compared to that of Turkish Stars:
Blue Angels: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/9/90/BAHR9.jpg

B. Number of Supersonic Jets:
Both are Supersonic whereas Turkish Stars fly with 8 jets, Blue Angels fly with 6 jets.
C. Discipline:
UN-disciplined Blue Angels (of US Army) versus ULTRA-disciplined Turkish Stars (of Turkish Army):
A.
On October 30, 2008 a spokesman for Blue Angels announced that the team would complete its last three performances of the year with five jets instead of six. The change was because one pilot and another officer in the organization had been removed from duty for engaging in an "inappropriate relationship". The Navy stated that one of the individuals was a man and the other a woman, one a Marine and the other from the Navy, and that Rear Admiral Mark Guadagnini, chief of Naval air training, was reviewing the situation. At the next performance at Lackland Air Force Base following the announcement the #4 or slot pilot, was absent from the formation. A spokesman for the team would not confirm the identity of the pilot removed from the team. On November 6, 2008 both officers were found guilty at an admiral's mast on unspecified charges but the resulting punishment was not disclosed.
B.Blue Angels pilotsí undisciplined behaviours continues in their shows as well (Hear the sounds of the pilots):
