Classic Fighters 2009 #18: RNZAF Red Checkers - post # 1

The Royal New Zealand Air Force's display team is called the Red Checkers, flying the Pacific Aerospace CT4/E Airtrainer. The team is made up of instructor pilots from the RNZAF's Central Flying School [CFS]. The CFS trains the Air Force's instructors, so these people really are the best.

Here are a number of pictures from the Red Checkers display. The final picture is the start of the spaghetti break - basically the team fly direct towards to crowd, then go in all directions...! It looks nuts, but they seem to know what they're doing!
