May 08, 2023

Red Arrow fans can catch a glimpse of the stunning RAF acrobatics team around the country this weekend during the summer season where the pilots will be showing their stunts

Red Arrow enthusiasts will be able to see the amazing RAF stunt team in action as they perform over parts of the country.

The aerobatic pilots have been flying over the north west of England and Wales and over the weekend they will head across many more regions.

Millions of people are expected to head out and see the iconic Red Arrows during their summer season of displays which got underway in late May.

Dozens of airshows have invited the crack team to visit up until September.

The Red Arrows represents the "speed, agility and precision of the Royal Air Force, the team is the public face of the service," stated the RAF.

They flew over the 2023 Isle of Man TT festival on Thursday evening and Friday they went from RAF Valley on Anglesey to RAF Waddington where the elite team is based.

Then the Red Arrows will head on Saturday over Lincolnshire going close to Peterborough, Nottingham before moving south via Northampton and Reading, and west to Swindon before going up to Shrewsbury.

The Cosford RAF museum meanwhile boasts a renowned collection of military aircraft, including the world's oldest spitfire, as well as Britain's V Bombers from the Cold War era including the Vulcan, Victor and Valiant. Also on display is a Dornier Do 17, a German bomber recovered from the bottom of the English Channel a decade ago.

Wing Commander Adam Collins, Officer Commanding of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, speaking ahead of the Red Arrows' summer season, said: "I know many people, including countless families, are already eager to plan which of these events they’ll be going to and we can't wait to entertain and inspire those watching.

"The 2023 season is one of the busiest in recent years and each show is a great opportunity for the Red Arrows to perform a new display that represents the speed, agility and innovation of the RAF."

The Red Arrows’ 59th season has a range of events, including an appearance at the Armed Forces’ Day National Event, which is being staged in Falmouth, Cornwall, on June 24.

For 2023, the team is carrying out flypasts with nine aircraft while aerobatic displays will be done using an eight-jet formation.

Reasons for this are based on safety and supervision said Wing Commander Collins.

The Officer Commanding added: "The decision to fly an eight-ship is a significant step after a challenging period.

"In the meantime, our entire team of over 140 dedicated personnel is working hard, together, to plan, prepare and perform a new dynamic display routine that will be seen and enjoyed by millions of people."
