Spanish Air Force jets land in formation, view from the seventh jet

In June of 1985, five Spanish-built CASA C-101 Aviojet training jets took off from San Javier Air Base to test their formation flying abilities. Ten days later, Patrulla Águila (Eagle Patrol) made their first public flying demonstration, and by 1988, they had adopted the seven plane formations that they practice today.

This video of Spanish Air Force’s Patrulla Águila aerobatic display team, above, shows exactly what it looks like to be in that seventh C-101 Aviojet. The video below shows what it’s like to loop with the team.
