The Best Display You've Seen At An Airshow

Wed Jun 27, 2007 10:34 am

The best solo I witnesed was 2 days ago,RAF Typhoon,incredible display,cheered me up on what was a miserable day,after watching an Aer Arann ATR-72 and Yak 50 its hard to comprehend the sound and speed.As for the best display team i've seen,The Red Arrows have to be the best closely followed by The Blades who were surprisingly entertaining,so what about the rest of you?who' the best?

HA!

The Canadian Forces Snowbirds; no questions asked!



The obvious highlight at any air show they attend!

Best I have seen was some years ago at the Wings Over Houston airshow at EFD. The Blue Angels were putting on a display and one lone F-18 snuck off behind the crowd. He came up from behind at near sonic speed, fast enough that he was keeping up with the sound of his plane. The F-18 shot overhead and scared the wits outta everyone, including myself. To this day that stands out as the greatest airshow moment I have witnessed.

I also love the so called "Heritage" flights in which WW2 era fighters fly formation with modern warbirds.

The best airshow performance I've ever seen is probably the Blue Angels (twice), but my favorite performance I've ever seen is Kent Pietsch in his Interstate Cadet.

The best I've seen so far was a performance by the RNZAF (Royal New Zealand Air Force) by one of their 757-200s.

Was awesome and very low flybys.

The best solo performance I have experienced must have been by Oscar Boesch where he flies to classical music in his glider.

I'd have to say Snowbirds, then the Red Arrows. I dont find that f-16/f-18 displays like the thunderbirds and blue angles can match that of the CT-114 tutor or the Hawk
