The Red Arrows are donating money to a Lincoln-based haulage firm, which has decorated a lorry with icons of Lincoln to raise cash for Lincoln Cathedral. The famous air acrobatic display team features on the side of the trailer.
There are hopes that a multi-million pound tourist attraction could be created at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire.
The base is the home of the Red Arrows and could be turned into an aviation heritage centre, say bosses at Lincolnshire County Council. They say the plan is still in very early stages but could help ensure Scampton continues to be used as an RAF base, securing the Arrows' long-term future.
It is envisaged regular air shows, a museum, exhibitions and and a hotel would draw in thousands of visitors from around world.
The Team Leader of the Red Arrows has told Calendar she's pleased the future of the aerobatic display team is now secure, after comments made by the Prime Minister last week.
Following speculation over whether defence cuts may spell the end for the Reds, David Cameron has offered reassurance, saying as long as he is in Downing Street the team will continue to grace the skies of Britain.
Downing Street also described the Red Arrows as one of Britain's most iconic brands, saying Mister Cameron believes they reflect everything that's great about Britain.
Squadron Leader Ruth Shackleton said: "Of course nothing is secure in this climate of ours but of course we're very pleased indeed that he confirmed that is the case and we're secure, and of course with the building of the runway at RAF Scampton also we will be there for a good few years yet."
The most iconic images connected to Lincolnshire are taking a road trip through Europe to raise vital funds for a restoration project. The Red Arrows are backing the project and the lorry's owners are donating a penny for every mile it travels to the Cathedral's fund. Kate Hemingway reports.
