Breitling Jet Team tours the U.S.

The Breitling Jet Team, supported by the Swiss watch company Breitling, took in some of the most incredible sights during its first-ever North American Tour this summer.

Performing in the U.S. for the first time this year, the team took the opportunity to see some of the incredible sights our country has to offer, given the bird’s eye views they have from the cockpits of their seven L-39 C Albatros jets.

Flights included a breathtaking pass over the New York City skyline, and a flight to salute the iconic French warship, the Hermione, as well as a flight near Mount Rushmore, the Kennedy Space Station in Florida, Yellowstone National Park and Mt. Rainier in Washington State.

Six L-39C aircraft of the Brietling Jet Team pass over the replica of the 18th-century French ship Hermione, the ship that brought Marquis de Lafayette to the United States in 1780, as the ship sails up the Patuxent River to visit Annapolis, Md.,June 13, 2015.
