Russian Aerobatics The Swifts And Knights Turns 20

The Russian aerobatics groups
known as ‘The Swifts’ and ‘The Russian Knights’ have marked 20 years
since the establishment of the ‘Swifts’ team by performing a series of
spectacular stunts above the heads of international spectators at a
military airfield near Kubinka west of Moscow.
‘The
Swifts’ fly MiG-29, and ‘The Russian Knights’, Sukhoi-27 jets. ‘The
Swifts’ are the world’s only aerobatics group flying fully armed combat
aircraft.
