Every year, since the rebirth of the Red Devils we try to attend as much presentations of our ambassadors as we can. This time we were in Dittingen Switzerland and spent the day with them to immerse us immerse you in the ethos of their show. And together with the report on the Dittingen air show, thanks to the fantastic weather conditions, we made a special page covering the entirety of their show, from the preparations to the hot debriefing. Ready? Follow the Reds Highway to hell!
