HILL AIR FORCE BASE — The seven-jet precision Breitling Jet Team from Europe will perform during the “Warriors Over the Wasatch” open house and air show June 25-26.

Flying the Czech-produced L-39 Albatros, the Breitling team performs a “meticulously coordinated ballet in which planes fly sometimes within 3 meters of each other.” 

With the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and U.S. Army Golden Knights already scheduled to headline, the addition of the Breitling team has Warriors Over the Wasatch organizers excited for what will be one of the “best air show’s Utah has ever seen.” 

Other scheduled acts include:

• Dan Buchanan flying unpowered glider

• Kirby Chambliss flying Red Bull Edge 540

• Greg Colyer flying the T-33

• Jerry Conley flying the De Havilland Vampire

• David Erickson flying the Zlin Z-50
