The Russian Knights, established on April 5, 1991, is one of the aerobatic demonstration teams of the Russian Air Force, and also the world’s only aerobatic team that uses heavy fighters.

The team, along with the Russian Swifts, is stationed at the Kubinka Air Base and constantly trains on star aircraft such as the front-line fighter Su-27.

First making a name for itself at the first Polish air show in Poznan on Aug 24, 1991, the team has made frequent appearances at all kinds of international events, and made its debut at Airshow China in November 1998.
