OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -- The Breitling Jet Team will be performing in the United States for the first time ever and it will be in Wisconsin.
They are performing at the Experimental Aircraft Association's annual AirVenture in Oshkosh in 2015.
The aerobatic display team has seven L-39 C Albatros jets that can reach speeds of up to 565 miles per hour and have flown in 36 countries so far.
The company claims it's the first and largest professional civilian jet team in the world.
Breitling hopes to attract those who missed seeing the Navy's daredevil Blue Angels and the Air Force's Thunderbirds, which have been making fewer public appearances due to federal budget cuts.
The team will also perform at the National Championship Air Races in Reno, Nevada.
Northern Wisconsin State Fair set up: not a small task

Breitling Chronospace Jet Team limited edition chronograph
Sep 30, 2010 by Evgueni Matoussevitch 3665 views
Celebrating seven years of partnership between the most famous French aerobatics team and Breitling, the Swiss watch maker has issued the new Breitling Chronospace Jet Team limited edition SuperQuartz COSC-certified chronograph watch. As usual, the new watch combines a traditionally oversized body with a digital/analogue display and the signature notched bezel that makes it easier to operate the slide rule: another trademark feature a Breitling watch. The price of the timekeeper, which is set well above $5000, is also traditionally high.
During its first 20 years of history the French civilian aerobatic display team changed four sponsors (those including the Martini brand,) three types of planes (the Italian piston-powered Aermacchi SF.260, the Swiss turboprop Pilatus PC-7 Turbo Trainer and, now, the Czech turbofan L-39 Albatros) and was about to go bankrupt in 2003, when it was saved from disaster by the Swiss watchmakers thus becoming the Breitling Jet Team.
Thanks to the Swiss watch brand, the Dijon-based team expanded from four to more impressive seven planes and at this time is regarded as one of the most popular aerobatics teams in the world performing at Formula 1 Grand Prix races, all kinds of air shows and, noblesse oblige, at Breitling’s corporate events.
It was simply inevitable for the Swiss watchmakers to deliver a 1000-piece Breitling Chronospace Jet Team limited edition watch.
Just like the normal Breitling Chronospace, the Jet Team comes powered by the famous Caliber 78 SuperQuartz COSC-certified chronometer movement, which is based on the ETA E20.341 Thermoline quartz mechanism featuring the thermocompensation technology that ensures almost unrivalled precision of the watch.
Unlike the base model, I very much adore the Jet Team version, mainly thanks to the lack of the gargantuan numerals on its huge dial, that are replaced with medium-sized hour marks. Covered in a thick layer of SuperLuminova, they provide highly-legible readings even in the worst lighting conditions without drawing too much attention to themselves.
The Breitling Jet Team logo, which is printed at 3 o’clock, is adequately balanced with a graphic L-39 representation at 6 o’clock and seems to be visually supported by the two NVG compatible LCD digital displays at the northern and southern parts of the white dial.
Of course, one could have expected the hour and minute hands to be slightly thicker, more proportionate with its huge case reaching 48 mm in diameter, but nothing is perfect, eh?
In its press release Breitling doesn’t say a single word about the watch’s price, but expect at least 20 percent premium over the normal Breitling Chronospace SuperQuartz Chronograph watch. With the latter selling for as high as $4800, this limited edition model may be offered at an MSRP of some $6000.*
Only 1000 individually numbered pieces will be made.
UPDATE: Well, it was offered at $5500, which is somewhat of a relief.
