The Breitling Jet Team are back in Dijon after completing their East Mediterranean Tour 2011

The Breitling Jet Team have arrived safely back to Dijon, France after a tour of 5 new countries, which involved 7 aircraft flying more than 225 sorties in 18 days with all flights on schedule.

This unique tour allowed the Breitling Jet Team ‘the largest professional civilian aerobatics team’ performing on jets to display to new audiences in the East Mediterranean and the Middle East demonstrating, through their impressive and emotive performance, Breitling’s passion for aviation.

Whether displaying over the coastline or, as in the case of Beirut and Amman, closing the main airport for the display, the surrounding areas, rooftops and balconies were always crowded with people eager to see the show. The Breitling Jet Team felt honoured by the warm welcome they received at each stage and were also happy to meet some of their aviation colleagues along the way including; the Hellenic Air Force, the Turkish Stars and even sharing the skies at the final event with the Royal Jordanian Falcons.

Alongside the main events, there were many highlights with first-time flights over the Acropolis in Greece, the Golden Horn in Turkey, the beautiful Cedar forests in Lebanon, Tel Aviv beach in Israel and a chance to fly more than a thousand feet below sea level over the Dead Sea in Jordan. This trip will be etched for a lifetime in the team’s memory and be envied by aviators around the globe.

The Breitling Jet Team fleet of L-39C Albatros jet aircraft will now undergo a winter maintenance program ready to fulfil their commitments for the upcoming 2012 season.
