Default Your Favorite Airshow Demo Team

What is your Favorite Airshow Demo Team or Tactical Demo Team? My Favorite Demo Team would have to be the Blue Angels. They perform some incredible maneuvers. I also like the F/A-18F Super Hornet Tactical Demo the best. I'm a NAVY fan. What are yours?

Masters of Disaster

These guys were insane and really put on a show that beats any other team hands down. If you were lucky enough to see their live performance, you would agree.

Sadly, two of them were lost in a midair collision recently, and the team suffered a huge loss.

I completely forgot about those guys. I do have to agree that they are one of my favorites. I saw them perform about three times at Oshkosh in 2004.

I have to agree, Masters of disaster is/was the one of the best shows, the tricks were spine tingling......That Waco made me feel like I was watching the Wright brothers,...the first time I saw the short take off.
Growing up next to an air force base I watched the Thunder Birds year in and year out, and I thought they were the best. Then I was fortunate enough to be part of the E'ltoro air shows with the Marines for a few years. My opinion swayed to the f-18s they just get so tight, it's incredable.

However the good old fashion barnstorming air show that Masters of disaster put on would get my vote every time.

Hands down, it was the RCAF Golden Hawks. Canadair Saber MK6's. The best team EVER!

Blue Angels certainly have no equal, especially when seen, heard and felt in person. Their precision and manuevers are proof enough but the the power, performance and sound from the F-18s put that show in a class by itself. I have seen some of our northern friends' shows and those were cool too but my second favorite show is the Smoke Squadron from Argentina, Saw them in the Tucanos flying their routine over the ocean in Miami - very unique.
