 The Red Sparrows      
Tyabb's Red Sparrows display team were working up the routine for the 2006 airshow and I went along to secure some footage for a DVD I'm making of the airshow. The group is made up of 5 Yak 52s and Nanchang CJ6 aircraft belonging to a bunch of friends from the Peninsula Aero Club.
Spectacular nose art on VH-RED, a Yak-52.
Airborne over Westernport in line astern with No4 visible above Rob's head.
No5 in the box - just making our way into the formation. Yak Attack! We head in line astern to "bomb" the beach on French Island.
A Nanchang off our Port wingtip - these are similar to the Yak and Chinese built.
