Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-29UB Fulcrum-B (02 Blue) from the Russian Air Force "Swifts" (officially known as the Стрижи or Strizhi in Russian)
at the Czech International Air Fest 2005, Brno-Tuřany (Czech Republic)

The "Swifts" (Strizhi) is a Russian Air Force aerobatic display team, flying Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-29A and MiG-29UB fighters.
The team also routinely uses just four aircraft for demonstrations, but also flies with fewer numbers and / or larger numbers by combining formations with the "Russian Knights" (another Russian aerobatic display team). The team's aircraft are painted in an overall white, red and blue colour scheme and do not employ smoke generators. All team members are drawn from the 237th Guards Proskurov Aircraft Demonstration Centre based in Kubinka Air Base. The beautiful Fulcrums are really rare visitors at international airshows.
