SPANISH AIR FORCE PATRULLA AGUILA

Spain's national aerobatic team was formed by the Spanish Air Force Academy at San Javier near Murcia in 1985, giving its first performance with five aircraft on 4 June that year. Then as now, the team was equipped with the Spanish-built CASA C-101 Aviojet, a single-engined jet trainer first flown in 1977, of which Spain is by some margin the biggest operator. Soon the Aguila expanded to a six-ship, making a first British appearance at the International Air Tattoo 87. Appearances at the Air Tattoo have been regular ever since, the most recent having been in 2011. Today the Aguila is a seven-ship formation, its 'signature' manoeuvre being, when weather conditions permit, a spectacular formation landing involving all seven aircraft.
