South Korean air display team amazes sky-watchers in Sussex

The South Korean "Black Eagles" team was spotted flying over Sussex this morning (July 13) as they prepare for the Royal International Air Tattoo this weekend. The pilots in their T-50 aircrafts are the national display team of the Republic of Korea Air Force. A member of the team told the RAF: “The Black Eagles are delighted to be back in the UK and have fond memories of their 2012 visit to the Waddington Airshow. This tour provides an opportunity for the Republic of Korea to show their gratitude to the UK veterans that fought in the Korean war between 1950 and 1953, where many lost their lives. The tour may be the last chance to show due respect and gratitude toward the UK veterans who may have may now be in their 90s.”
