June 13, 2014 at 12:12 GMT +00:00 · Published

Thousands of people flocked to Buturlinovka town in the Voronezh region on Friday, to watch the Russian Knights aerobatic team's air show on the centenary of the oldest Russian aviation regiment.

Pilots in Sukhoi Su-27 aircraft performed high-speed aerial manoeuvres in harsh weather conditions, gracing the crowds with oblique loops and half-stitches, steep turns, battle reversals and synchronous barrels, with aircraft less than three metres (9.8 ft) apart from each other. Modern and classic jet craft including the Mikoyan MiG-31, MiG-29, Su-34, Su-24, Su-25 and Antonov An-30 were also on display at the site.

Russian Knights, formed in 1991, is the official aerobatic team of the Russian air forces and holder of a number of world records.
