The popular French jet team, who fly the L-39C Albatross, used to be a relatively common sight at UK airshows until their major US tour began in 2015. Since then, they have appeared just once in the UK, at the Bournemouth Air Festival last year.

The team will likely act as the show’s headliner in the absence of the Red Arrows, who will be touring North America in August and September. With shows over the affected period needing to find a well-known performer to bring in the crowd, there could be more UK shows for the Breitling Jet Team announced in the coming months.

The Biggin Hill Festival of Flight will be held on the 17th-18th August.
