History

The team was formed in 1960, flying four Zlin Z-526 Trener aircraft under the name Box Trener. In 1989, the team switched to the Zlin Z-50 and came under the sponsorship of Unimax, flying as the Unimax Devils and later the Sky Box Aerobatic Team. They finally came under Red Bull sponsorship in 2001 and transitioned to the XtremeAir XA-42 in 2015, dropping to a three-ship formation for one year as they became accustomed to their new aircraft.
