The CASA C-101 Aviojets of the Patrulla Águila have been famous for their aerobatics since 1985 in numerous Spanish and foreign events.
One of the most common flights of the Eagle Patrol consists of making passes drawing the colors of the Spanish Flag with the trails of smoke emanating from their turbofan engines. Sometimes there are problems when casting the dye that is used to draw the red and yellow in those trails, and that leads to criticism.
The Ministry of Defense has just published an interesting video in which Commander Martín, head of the Eagle Patrol, explains how the smoke system works with which these white or colored trails are emitted and the possible faults that can be registered, as well as the procedure to activate it from the cockpit of the aircraft (the video is in Spanish, you can activate the automatic subtitles in English in the bottom bar of the player):
