The Complete Aerobatic Display YAK 50 & 52 SOLO DISPLAYS
Air displays have been around since before the First World War, when individual pilots and small groups of enthusiasts used to gather to demonstrate aircraft, promote aviation and entertain the crowds. The world’s first air display is reported to have been the Grande Semaine d’Aviation de la champagne in Rennes, France, which was held in 1909. The world’s oldest aerobatic display team is the Blue Diamonds, which flew the F86 Sabre and were formed in 1952. The larger air shows include the Le Bourget Show, Farnborough Air Show, the Dubai Air Show and the Singapore Air Show. The largest military air show in the world is the Royal International Air Tattoo, which is held annually at RAF Fairford, in the UK. Air Displays can be browsed and booked through the AvPay Air Display Directory.
