The Breitling Jet Team, the world's largest professional civilian aerobatic display team performing in jets, will join the United States Navy Blue Angels in a rare North American tour stop on June 4 & 5 of 2016 at Smyrna/Rutherford County Airport for the 2016 Great Tennessee Air Show.
Based in France, the Breitling Jet Team is comprised of seven pilots flying L-39 C Albatros jets in a sophisticated demonstration of precision and speed, working in total synchronicity to wow audiences with rolls, loops and gravity-defying moves. The Great Tennessee Air Show is proud to be a part of the Breitling Jet Team's 2016 American Tour.
"We are thrilled to welcome the Breitling Jet Team on one of their few North American tour stops in 2016," said John Black, executive director of Smyrna/Rutherford County Airport Authority.
