The Egyptian team, Silver Stars, carried out their performances using K8-E aircraft, demonstrating the skills of the Air Force fighters. The British team, Red Arrows, carried out their show using Hawk planes, according to a video statement by the military spokesman.

The day also included air shows with a free-jumping team affiliated with the Egyptian parachute forces, the statement said, adding that the show highlighted Egyptian tourist and archaeological destinations.
