For the second and last year of the Breitling Jet Team’s inaugural American Tour, New York City was the place for some outstanding and memorable events. The pilots flew in formation over the Manhattan skyline and Central Park. They also celebrated the grand opening of the newly-relocated Flagship Breitling Boutique New York alongside other Breitling Ambassadors including seasoned pilot and aviation aficionado, John Travolta; former astronaut and retired U.S. Navy Captain, Mark Kelly; retired U.S. Navy Captain and astronaut who recently completed a year-long mission in space, Scott Kelly and four-time Stanley Cup Champion and Hockey Hall of Fame member, Wayne Gretzky.
In addition to flying Memorial Day Weekend at the Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach, New York, the team also attended a special event celebrating New York’s Fleet Week. Simultaneously, one of the Breitling Jet Team’s L-39C Albatros aircraft was displayed on the flight deck of the famed Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. The pilots visited the aircraft together with Scott Kelly on a special morning to greet fans.
