History

The Baltic Bees were formed in 2008 by team leader Artyom Soloduha, who was the youngest jet team leader in the world at the time. Initially starting as a three-ship team, the Baltic Bees quickly added a fourth, fifth and sixth aircraft. In July 2019, the team performed a one-off seven-ship display at Wings Over Baltics; it is hoped that the Baltic Bees will become a seven-ship team in the future. In 2017 and 2019, the Baltic Bees performed near Chengdu in China.
