Navigating 40,000 kilometers the equivalent distance of the world’s circumference the Breitling Jet Team, consisting of seven L-39C Albatros jets, has set a world first by taking their unique and polished performance to new audiences in China, South East Asia, South Korea, Japan, Moscow, and Eastern Europe.
From the aerial perspective, the team enjoyed flying low and in close formation over some of the world’s most iconic and notorious landmarks including: Petronas Towers, Borobudur Temple in Indonesia, Mount Fuji, the Great Wall of China and the historic city of Prague.
As a special welcome back into European skies the team was greeted by two Swiss Air Force F/A-18 supersonic fighter jets and escorted across Swiss air space. After basing their operations in foreign countries for the past 12 months the pilots are enjoying having their aircraft back in Dijon.
The Breitling Jet Team is the first civilian jet display team to complete a tour encompassing Asia, Russia and Europe.
