Lovely shot Ricardo. Having 5 in the formation is extremely rare. Were they changing formations when you took the shot? It is always 4 planes in the tight diamond and the two solo jets or all six. Very nice photo.

Hi Jetzguy, you're right. It is a four aircraft formation, with numbers 1 to 4. Number 7 is filming the performance in close up while numbers 5 and 6 are flying normally as solos. I tought it could be a new pilot being prepared but the guy in the backseat was holding a camera.
