Black Eagles

History will be made at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire this summer when the South Korean Black Eagles become the first aerobatics display team from Asia to perform in Europe.

The team, comprising eight T-50 'Golden Eagle' supersonic light-trainer aircraft, will make their debut at the Royal International Air Tattoo on July 7-8.

Their visit is the culmination of more than 20 years' planning by the airshow organisers, who first contacted the Republic of Korea's London embassy in the mid-1980s.

“It was an epic spectacle, as magical as anything you've ever seen in the West End, and as loud as anything you've ever heard at Knebworth.”

Jeremy Clarkson, Television Presenter

“All the thrills, excitement and noise of a Grand Prix, but in the air!”

Jenson Button, Formula 1 Racing Driver

“This is the best airshow!”

Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 Astronaut
