Only because the UK isn't part of Europe, which is a continent off the
east coast of Great Britain. "Fog in Channel, Continent Isolated", and
all that kind of stuff. :-)

No. Possibly bettered by the Red Arrows. I haven't seen the Blue Angels,
so can't comment on them, except to say that AFAIK they have a different
sort of display from the Reds.

Second that. Years ago at the Reno Air Races, I saw both the
Thunderbirds and Snowbirds. The former did a whole lot of high speed
stuff, making lots of noise, and being for all intents and purposes, out
of visual range much of the time.

The Snowbirds by contrast, were vastly more visual and graceful. It must
take great skill to fly such large formations at lower speeds.
I was watching from an open field at what I believe to be the north end
of the runway, directly in line with the runway. The Snowbirds made
several passes where they'd be descending seeming directly at me, then
gently pull up and sweep overhead. Man, what I wouldn't have given for a
good digital camera, or video camera then...

I don't think I've ever seen the snowbirds here in Europe. I concur that
the Thunderbirds are a bit of 'overkill' though those computers put on a
tight display.

As for the 'Reds' or 'Dead Sparrows' as they are called here, good - but no
cigar. ;~)

Second that. I like the Blues and T-birds (and haven't had the
pleasure of seeing the Reds) but for originality, sheer numbers and
for going slow enough that I can keep up with them, the Snowbirds
can't be beat!

I most strongly disagree.

For me, the Red Arrows are the best there is.
Not relying on lots of noise and/or speed but simply on precision flying. Of
course they have the advantage of flying a very handsome aircraft.

Herman
