The 3 squadrons at Baden Soellingen were 421 (Indians), 439 (Tigers) and 441 (Foxes).

Teams were, as I recall, mostly 5 aircraft.

The names of the demonstration teams depended on which squadron was providing the team.

The Operational Training Unit at CFB Cold Lake in Alberta also had a 5 aircraft team, the Deadeye Zips, who displayed throughout Canada and the northern USA.

I was fortunate enough to be in that team in 1976. Enormous fun. We mostly arrived as a 5-ship, few passes as such, then split off as a 4-ship and a singleton.
