Fifteen Hawker Hunter F.6s led by Sqn Ldr Brian Mercer in a T.7. When Brian Mercer took the reins at 92 Squadron and formed the Blue Diamonds, he wanted to prove that the impact of large formation aerobatic teams had not faded, and that it was possible to come up with new and exciting formations. Having sixteen aircraft allowed the team to split into individual formations, as had been first tried by Sqn Leader Peter Latham in the Black Arrows a couple of years earlier. Here, they are seen in two Cross formations of five aircraft flanking a similar formation, but with a sixth aircraft, the T.7, leading from the front.
