Aero L-39C Albatros (ES-YLR / 4) from the Breitling Jet Team at the RIAT 2019, RAF Fairford (United Kingdom)

The Breitling Jet Team is made up of seven L-39C Albatros aircraft, Czech-made twin-seater military training jets that can also be used for passenger flights. The Breitling Jet Team is one of only a few professional civilian jet aerobatics teams in the world. Each time the Breitling Jet Team takes to the skies, it executes a flawlessly choreographed aerial ballet. Seven powerful L-39C Albatros military jets are flown at speeds of nearly 700 km/h (435 mph) within three meters (about ten feet) of each other by pilots of matchless skill, most of them from the French Air Force or from the Patrouille de France

The Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) is the world's largest military air show, held annually over the third weekend in July,
usually at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire, England in support of The Royal Air Force Charitable Trust.
The show typically attracts a total of 150.000 to 160.000 spectators over the weekend.
