PLEASE NOTE: Air Force 1 models are never finished to the same standard as Corgi or Hobby Master ones. You will therefore inevitably find several minor paint imperfections on most of their models. Please do not purchase the model if this will bother you.

Al Fursan (Arabic: ﺍﻟﻔﺮﺳﺎﻥ‎‎; in English The Knights) is the aerobatics demonstration team of the United Arab Emirates Air Force. It was formed in 2010 with Italian-built Aermacchi MB-339NAT jet aircraft. The team has a total of seven aircraft, all seven of which are used for performances (some accounts indicate that the seventh is a spare, but all seven flew at the IDEX 2015 show in Abu Dhabi).

The Aermacchi MB-339 is an Italian military trainer and light attack aircraft. It was developed as a replacement for the earlier MB-326. The first flight took place on 12 August 1976 and deliveries to the Italian Air Force commenced in 1979. It was still in production in 2004 in an enhanced version with a much-modernised cockpit. Over 200 MB-339s have been built, with roughly half of them going to the Italian Air Force.
