Al Fursan (Arabic: ﺍﻟﻔﺮﺳﺎﻥ‎; in English The Knights) is the aerobatics demonstration team of the United Arab Emirates Air Force. It was formed in 2010 with Italian-built Aermacchi MB-339NAT jet aircraft.[1] The team has a total of seven aircraft, all seven of which are used for performances (some accounts indicate that the seventh is a spare, but all seven flew at the IDEX 2015 show in Abu Dhabi).
