Awesome ROK moment of the day: The Black Eagles in the UK.

Written by: Stephe Thornton, Managing Editor ^@@^

Why is this so awesome, you ask? Well, for several reasons.

Firstly, as I understand it, the Black Eagles have only re-formed and been flying again for a few years, and they flew so well that they came home with several prestigious awards. And secondly, by watching this, you get a terrific glimpse into the life of ROK Army PFC Jung JiHoon/Rain’s fictional R2B: Return to Base movie character “Lt. Jung TaeHoon”, who is a Black Eagle pilot (until his kuu-rrazy stunt gets him busted back to combat duty, that is). This is a smidgeon of what TaeHoon experiences daily in his exciting fictional life. Cool!

Thumbs up to the ROKAF for sharing their video. And thumbs up to the Black Eagles for a great first showing on the international airshow scene this year. I’m calling the military base I live next too right away and requesting that, for our next air show, the Black Eagles be invited from South Korea.

Seeing them and our Blue Angels or our Thunderbirds in the same show would be epic.

  1. They are simply amazing. The show reminds me of that time when I was a young girl watching the “Blue Diamonds” performing stunts just like this one, at Clark Field Air Force Base in Angeles City, Philippines , a US base. I felt goosebumps while watching the Black Eagles. They are awesome. What a sight !


  2. Spectacular!! The control they must have to do those formations and keep the planes in place is awesome to watch. I was dizzy just watching, so I can’t begin to imagine how they feel flying at that speed and doing acrobatics. This video blew my mind! Thanks for posting! 😀


  3. They were pretty darned amazing!
