ADTSIG Video Playlist

A collection of interesting and/or rare videos of various display teams, past and present, from around the world.
Although there are hundreds of videos clips of display teams on YouTube, this playlist is rather selective, including only those I think are the most interesting, rarely seen teams or rare/archive clips.
Of course, with each one comes a number of YouTube "suggestions" for other/similar videos - and I am discovering new ones all the time !
But this Playlist will give you a good starting point - and hopefully, some "obscure" videos that you have not seen before !
