I go to several air shows during the summer months every year. Here in the U.S., we have at least one aerobatic team called the Lima Lima team that
does night-time formation flying. They do their performance during the day, but they also have a night-time performance.
and more night formation flying:
The air shows I've been to with the Lima Lima flight team has been much darker and at least once they played the X-Files music and their opening
sequence has always been the triangular UFO formation. It truly does look like a triangle UFO with all these lights to the person who doesn't know
there's an air show going on.
This video posted above from Peru looks almost identical to some of the maneuvers the Lima Lima team perform at night. Starting at around 5:00 in the
Peru video, you can see all the planes are lined up in what's called the "trail formation" in the airshow business. Each plane trails another. In
the Peru video while the planes are in the trail formation, you can see as each plane banks to their left, their landing lights shine briefly at the
camera. That's what the brief brightness comes from from each object. The video is clearly some flight demonstration team performing at night.
