United Kingdom
The Blades Jet Provost

The Blades aerobatic display team was formed in 1963 from the Royal Air Force No1 Flying Training School at Linton-on-Ouse, Yorkshire. The team flew four Jet Provost T.4 aircraft and on T.5 from 1970, both painted in standard white-red colors.

In 1973 the Blades changed the name and became the Linton Blades and added a blue color painting at the top of the fuselage and on the tail, but at the end of the year the team was disbanded.
