Air-to-Air Shots of the Saudi Special Colored Aircraft during the 88th National Day Celebrations

On September 23rd, 2018, Saudi Arabia celebrated their 88th Saudi National Day with their specially colored five aircraft. The names of the aircraft are as follows.

  • F-15C of the 13th Squadron
  • F-15S of the 92nd Squadron
  • One Tornado jet from 7th Squadron
  • One Eurofighter Typhoon from 10th Squadron
  • One multi-role tanker transport; A330 MRTT of the 24th Squadron

These five Green colored aircrafts performed flyovers over the three cities of Jeddah, Riyadh, and Dhahran alongside the Saudi Hawks display team.

The pictures of this amazing flyover portray a green colored MRTT which is one of the only 6 MRTT in service by RSAF, refuels the four fast jets mid-flight even though all of the other jets have different IFR (In-Flight refueling) systems. The reason for MRTT to perform the in-flight refueling is its ARBS (Advanced Air Refueling Boom System) that can easily refuel F-15s and Saudi Tornado and Eurofighter Typhoon jets.

Some of the special pictures of this flyover are as follows.
