Smokey Bandits

The Smokey Bandits are the current Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) aerobatic display team. They fly with five MiG-29N/NUB fighters, using another one as a spare. All the team's aircraft are painted in a standard gray camouflage scheme.

Based at Kuantan, the Smokey Bandits aerobatic team is a unit of No. 17/19 Skn (Squadron), which is also known as the “Taufan Ganas”. All of the team's pilots are operational fighter pilots, including a female pilot, Major Patricia Yap Syau Yin, who flies as a solo.

The Smokey Bandits demonstration team was first formed in 2001. From 6 to 9 July 2011, the team made their international debut during the Brunei International Defence Exhibition (BRIDEX).

The other main events at which the team performs are the Formula One “PETRONAS” Malaysian Grand Prix at the Sepang International Circuit and at the “LIMA” Airshow.
