The Black Diamond air show performance team is one place where Air Force, civilian, and Navy pilots mix. The four-ship diamond flies one of the tightest formations in the business in L-39s. The solos fly Polish-made Migs. Team lead Jerry "Jive" Kerby (retired Air Force) and Dale "Snort" Snodgrass (retired Navy) give the interviews in the video.

Just because you don't hear any ribbing from Kerby doesn't mean he didn't give it. His answer to "tell us about the other pilots" brought a quick smile and the answer, "They're all legends in their own minds."
