    Yes they are, but they taking a lot of space for their setup when you compare them with European teams

    With no, i meant it is a single-ship display, ofcourse there is a whole team on the ground for making this possible.

    I remember the Grashoppers from the RNLAF from way back in time.
    When they started their show, it was mostly time for me to go get some food or drinks.

    Currently the RNLAF and BAF are not having any display teams to my knowledge. Only solo displays, but they are pretty impresive.

    Yeah, the F-27 demo was nice to see.
    But the Grashoppers I had seen after 1 time. It was nice, for once Also remeber the terrible music they had running during the show.
