Red Arrows to take to the West's skies once more

You'll need to keep your eyes peeled again this summer as the Red Arrows return to the West once more.

The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team will take to the skies above RAF Fairford in typically thrilling fashion on all three days of the airshow.

Last year a bumper crowd of almost 150,000 people were treated to a spectacular displays from across the globe during the three-day Royal International Air Tattoo at the airfield in Gloucestershire.

Other highlights this year include the twin-turboprop Beech King Air, used by the RAF for advanced multi-engine pilot training.

Adding a touch of nostalgia favourites such as the Lancaster, Hurricane and Spitfire from the RAF's Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will also take to the sky.

Eager fans will also have the opportunity to meet the Red Arrows in the RAF Village, as well as being able to speak to a number of RAF personnel.
