That's a nice piece of filming and the Mirages towards the end was a surprise.

Very nice. The best FJ display I've ever seen was the Rafale in Bahrain a few years back - awesome.

Have they thought of advertising Budweiser, or have the Reds got the monopoly on that?

Living in France, but a former Trustee of the RAT, I have slightly divided loyalties as between PdF and RAFAT. However, I can at least now point out to French friends that RAFAT avez neuf avions, mais PdF huit avions. However, I do think the PdF are VERY good and that this video is excellent. Well done to both teams.

They practise over here outside of the display season. I kid on visitors that I have arranged the display just for them

Can anyone identify the soundtrack music?

Stand by for a HD movie of the Reds interacting with a few Typhoons.

There are a few more similar videos on that site..

Why are the pilots doing Tai Chi during their briefing?

Plastic B ... It's all part of "getting in the zone" ... Most aerobatic pilots walk through their choreography pre-flight in this way

Oh. it looked a bit odd - I've seen the odd clip of Red Arrow pilots using whiteboards and flat models but no mass arm waving.

Anyway some great videos there... are they adverts?
