L-39 Patriot Jets by doubleheader

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

The Patriots Jet Team first debuted in 2003 as a two-ship team and continued to add Jets until 2006 when they became a team of fast-paced, formation flying, choreographed six-ship diamond formation aerobatic maneuvers. They are retired Blue Angel’s and Thunderbird’s pilots.

Their signature “Tail Slide” where the aircraft actually slides backwards toward the ground is unique to the Patriots and their performances are highlighted by a computerized red, white and blue smoke system.
