Places No Comments

The seven ship Breitling Jet Team, largest professional civilian aerobatic display team, performed over the sea in front of Siloso Beach, Sentosa, Singapore. The aerobatic team flies seven Aero L-39 Albatros jets. An aerobatics display showcased the Team’s ability to perform highly complex individual and group manoeuvres, Rocket, Crossbow, Black Diamond, Blackbird, Avenger and Arrowhead, at breathtaking speeds which exhilarated the spectators. All Team pilots are former French Air Force fighter pilots except the leader and founder Jacques Bothelin who is a civilian aerobatics pilot and one of the world’s most experienced aerial display pilots. The seven jet planes were flown by Jacques “Speedy” Bothelin (Leader), Patrick “Gaston” Marchand, Christophe “Douky” Deketelaera, Francois “Ponpon” Ponsot, Bernard “Charbo” Charbonnel and Frederic “Fredo” Schwebel.
