Synchronized. Royal Jordanian Falcons Aerobatics Team executing one of their stunning manoevres. Roskilde, Denmark, August 2017


During this years Air Show in Roskilde many interesting types of Aircraft have been displayed. Not all of them flew a presentation and were presented as static objects during the event. The pictures in this issue cover two types of aircraft that the hard-boiled Air Show visitor probably finds less interesting. Aerobatics.

And yet, both of them surprised the spectators in their own way:

The Jordanian Aerobatics Display Team, formed on the orders of His Majesty the Late King Hussein Bin Talal of Jordan in 1976, and their agile and powerful Walter Extra 300 aerobatic aircraft, allowing the Team to execute the most demanding and spectacular aerobatic manoeuvres. Some of them are not believed feasable.The Royal Jordanian Falcons have an international reputation for precision, professionalism and spectacular performance. They function as a highly specialized asset for the promotion of Jordan, serving as the country’s “roving ambassadors”. A truly enjoyable experience to see this team and their show.

The second type of today’s issue is a true Oldtimer: The Piper J-3 Cub. The Aircraft of this Air Show is owned and flown by a young, Swedish Pilot, Johan Gustafsson. The Piper J-3 Cub is an American light aircraft that was built between 1937 and 1947 by Piper Aircraft. The aircraft has a simple, lightweight design which gives it good low-speed handling properties and short-field performance. The Cub is one of the best known light aircraft of all time. The Cub’s simplicity, affordability and popularity — as well as its large production numbers, with nearly 20,000 built in the United States — invokes comparisons to the Ford Model T automobile.

Johan Gustafsson presented his Aircraft by day as well as by night. At daytime, the Cub was loaded with important amounts of smoke of different colors – by night it seemed transformed into to a flying fireworks platform. Where the Piper Cub couldn’t challenge aerodynamic laws with power and speed, it compensated with smoke, strobe lights and perfect slow-flying. Unusual, exiting and beautiful effects as result.
