Am I the only one who finds teams like the Red Arrows, Snowbirds etc... uninspiring?

They lack high performance aircraft, so after you're done watching F-15's, 16's, 18's and now F-22's and F-35's do their thing - it's kind of a let down.

The European display teams (and the Canadians) turn the sky into a canvas and their displays are more tailored for pilots being like artists as opposed to the high performance, supposedly tactical displays of the American display teams.

At the end who prefers what, each to their own. The high performance American display teams are unique in their own manner.
