Farnborough airshow denied the full Black Eagles display

Black Eagles

RoKAF Display Team Black Eagles will perform with only one T-50 aircraft at Farnborough, as the airshow organizers denied the full team performance.

They reason is the local landscape surrounded by built-up areas, where only a few display team allowed, which knows the area very well such as Red Arrows. Therefore, this should be a big disappointment for all, who want to see the eight-ship aerobatic team from Republic of Korea Air Force rolling into the sky. 

The 10th Black Eagles T-50 planes came to UK on May in disassembled condition at Manchester by Korean Air Cargo Boeing 747. They were taken by road to RAF Leeming for reassembly and test flights.

There followed a private display at RAF Scampton, home of the Red Arrows. The Black Eagles then flew on both days at the RAF Waddington airshow, were they won a Boeing Trophy before moving on to RAF Fairford for the RIAT show.
