Expect heart-stopping aerobatics at next month's Singapore Airshow, which is set to boast a record four aerial display teams this year.

The Republic of Singapore Air Force's Black Knights will be joined by the Republic of Korea Air Force's Black Eagles and, for the first time, the Indonesian Air Force's (TNI-AU) Jupiter Aerobatic Team.

The Sunday Times also understands that stunt pilots from China's People's Liberation Army Air Force August 1st, or Bayi Aerobatics Team, are looking to make their Singapore debut at the biennial six-day event at Changi Exhibition Centre. The six-man team made its international debut at the Moscow Airshow last August, flying the J-10 aircraft.

If its participation is confirmed, this will be the biggest line-up of aerobatic display teams to take part in the 65-minute aerial display since the Singapore Airshow began in 2008.
