During last week's Farnborough International Airshow in England,
the flying displays, which attract large crowds even on "trade
days", take up most of the afternoon.
In the HD videos below you will see one of the
most unusual-looking aircraft, an U.S. Marine Corps Bell Boeing
MV-22 Osprey tiltrotor, and one of the world's best aerobatic
flying teams - the Black Eagles from the Republic of South Korea's
Air Force - performing, and stunning the crowd, in a super agile
The Korean Air Force Black Eagles have won many
awards all over the world for their performance skills. Just this
month alone (July 2012), the team has already won awards and it is
not even the 15th of the month yet! Awards presented to the Black
Eagles last week include the King Hussein Memorial Sword for the
Best Overall Flying Demonstration, and the As The Crow Flies
Trophy, at the awards ceremony of the Royal International Air
Tattoo. Another award is the Boeing Trophy which they won for the
best display at the 17th Waddington International Air Show earlier
in the month.
The U.S. Marine Corps Bell Boeing MV-22 Osprey
performed admirably throughout the show, mesmerizing the crowds
with the rhythmic sound of its rotors slicing through the air,
while demonstrating just how agile this aircraft can be. The V-22
Osprey is destined to eventually replace the CH-46 Sea Knight.
