1957 Skyblazers and Black Arrows original footage

They don't make air shows like this anymore. I was talking with the Horseman lead Jim Beasley this summer about how my father was a Skyblazer back in the 1950s. Beasley seemed really nostalgic for that time, and commented that those were the days of real air shows, and what we have today hardly compares to the greatness of those days. In this video, shot in 1957, you can see what he was talking about. This video features the Skyblazers, the Italians in F-84Fs, the French in the Mystere IV, and the 111 Black Arrows.... some of the greatest aerobatic teams of all time.
