[VIDEO] Russian Roolettes – Yak52 Nanchang Display Team at Hunter Valley Airshow

The “Russian Roolettes” performed a fantastic formation flying aerobatic display at the Hunter Valley Airshow today. The Roolettes (not to be confused with the RAAF Roulettes of course) are a team of six pilots who fly four Yak 52s and two Nanchangs with a seventh member on commentary duty.

According to the commentary at the show, the blustery conditions meant separation was increased a little in this display but they still kept the formations incredibly tight and looked pretty darn close from ground level.

Here’s a quick video montage of some of their highlights, watch until the end to see the final bomb burst manoeuvre over the crowd.
