Aircraft: Sukhoi 26M
The best aerobatic plane in the world. 400 HP and weighing 700 kg, after its first flight in 1984, it is still The King. With more power and traction than any other, the main challenge is taming this brutal mount. Few manage it, but for those that do, the result is awesome.
Soon after the introduction of the PC-7 in 1982, the Swiss Air Force began to present the new aircraft in solo exhibitions. The first public team display was conducted in 1987 by an ad hoc team of nine volunteer pilots. Until today – 30 years after the first team display – the formation stands for precision, dynamics and elegance. We are proud that our watches have been tested by these professionals for the past 15 years.
