Air Show Jets
Air show jets power through the sky in tight formation. Engines roar as the jets twist and dive, just inches apart. Then the jets peel apart, spewing trails of colored smoke behind them to leave patterns in the air. Flying these jets requires incredible concentration and precision. Pilots have been thrilling fans and testing the limits of their machines since the early days of aviation. In this book, you will discover: how air shows and demo teams have evolved; what dangers pilots face during every maneuver; how pilots achieve their closely synchronized flight maneuvers; and what it takes to be an air show jet pilot.
