Special exhibition on Taiwan's aerobatics team to start soon

Taipei, Dec. 28 (CNA) A special exhibition showcasing the Air Force's Thunder Tiger Aerobatics team will commence this week, which will offer visitors a glimpse into the development of the team over the past six decades. The exhibition will run from Dec. 30 to April 30 at the Armed Forces Museum in Taipei, the organizer said. Historic photos and documents will be on display to help visitors learn more about the history of the team, which was established in 1953. These will include different types of aircraft that were once used by the team members to perform aerobatic maneuvers. The team now flies locally developed AT-3 jet trainers during their air show missions. Thunder Tiger members have taken part in 157 airshows in Taiwan since they began using the AT-3 advanced trainer 26 years ago. The team has performed in many significant events, such as the National Day celebrations. (By Elaine Hou)
