Very rare are the occasions that you can admire an Aerobatic Team from Russia at an Airshow outside their own country, therefore it is no wonder that a lot of enthusiasts made their way to Brno in the Czech Republic on the week-end of September, 10th-11th 2005 for this year's Czech International Air Fest (CIAF) 2005.

Announced as the highlight of the show has been the appearance of the Strizhi (Swifts), which has already been the case sometimes in recent years, but this time they finally managed it to bring them to Brno and the 5-ship of MiG-29 flew their elegant display routine on both show days.
