In occasion of May 9 parade at Red Square, the Russian Air Force aerobatic teams received new tailfin livery.

The new livery of the tailfin represents Russian national flag colors and insignia “ВВС РОССИИ” (Russian Air Force). The new livery triggered many negative comments on social networks, and are largely disliked by team fans instead of old liveries.

Other interesting fact is the removing of MiG Corporation logo from the Swifts aircraft.

Today Swifts aerobatic team celebrates its 26 anniversary since their first air display.
