World record aerobatics team to entertain Gold Cup final crowd at Cowdray Park

Leading aerobatic display team Blades will add to the thrill of Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup finals day at Cowdray Park.

Organisers have announced the former Red Arrows pilots renowned worldwide for their close formation aerobatics displays, will be entertaining the spectators after the British Open polo final on Sunday July 15.

The Blades represent some of the country’s most experienced display pilots who are experts in aerobatics. At the end of 2011, the team set the world record for flying 26 consecutive formation loops.

Their display will be 15 minutes long and full of breath-taking manoeuvres from start to finish as the pilots reach combined speeds of over 400mph while flying just eight feet apart.
