The Blades Aerobatic Display Team are bringing wings to wheels at TT 2012. As well as superbikes, the Isle of Man will play host to high-speed thrills of a slightly different kind as it welcomes The Blades to the line-up.

All former Red Arrows, The Blades will perform their dynamic 15-minute display at Laxey and Douglas Bay on Thursday 7th June.

Flying at combined speeds of over 400mph the display includes high-speed opposition passes, 10g close-formation breaks, tumbling and rolling manoeuvres.
