The team is based at Wonju airbase and is equipped with the T-50 Golden Eagle since 2010, when the Black Eagles was reactivated after a being temporarily disbanded in 2007, and has also undertaken a European tour in 2012, when the team displayed at RAF Fairford during the Royal International Air Tattoo.
