Thanks for the heads up Redeye!

Very interesting since we don't have anyone from this part of the world!

Silverone is referring to the White Ravens Training Day 5 video. The maneuvers and the sequence are very similar, if not exactly the same (The left barrel was cut out of the WRTD5 movie).

White Ravens Training Day 5 (2006)

Coincidence?

Who knows, it doesn't bother me (as creator of the WR show), though it is interesting to notice.

At time we finished the VFAT 2006 trainings our WR airshow turned out modified and extended, so still not the same ;)

Does the SFT team (3Go) have a website? And what about the Katana team (Virtual Blue Impulse)?

Sounds like we need an Asia section soon. :)

I'm in contact with Shaddow from the SFT Team, they are considering about their team name and will contact me soon.
I tried to contact the Katana team though my Japanese isn't that good :roll:
Anyone here speaks Japanese? :lol:
What I could figure out is that they know about VFAT, and that they plan to join VFAT this year.

Sounds like a lot of teams will be participating in this year's VFAT. It's turning out to be a 72-hour event. "Get your slot time, have admins on staff around the clock and watch others fly in between naps"... I love it! Just like a big LAN-meet, but for formation flying.

@Frazer, if you have the websites for the 2+ teams in Asia, why not add them to the list anyway. Eventually, someone who speaks Japanese (or an English speaking Japanese) will connect the dots. It would be cool to have each continent represented. 8)

I have a nephew that speaks fluent Japanese, I will contact him & see if he can help. Frazer - how are you trying to communicate? email or voice?

The thing I need is someone to write on their forum about "VFAT", the "LockOn Aerobatic Teams" list and that we search contact. Hopefully someone of the Katana team speaks english and if so we can exchange email/msn addresses and then I got all I need ;)

Thanks for the headsup :)

Thanks for the info, though I already had these links ;)

I do have contact with the 3go (SFT) Shaddow and I can add them to the list when they figured out their official name.

About the Katana team, I can find no way to register on their (to me) very strange forum....... :roll:

This SFT2007 video is just for extend aerobatic in China and commemorate the "2 years old birthday"(I don't know how to say it in English) of SFT. At that time, we don't know VFAT (coz my boss don't speak English), so, that video was not ahead to all of the formation flyer (you can see there is all Chinese in it). And I think the "actions" is assuredly copied from WR.

I speak Japanese, can be your translater backup. Thank you for pay attention to us. Happy flying.

Myself and 7 guys are currently making a fictional F-5 team and are currently planning on doing VFAT if we are trained up enough by then.
