Where can I see the Red Arrows this summer?


The RAF Red Arrows are returning to the West Country this summer, making their first stop at the hugely popular Torbay Airshow.

The show takes place on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd June. It will be the public’s first chance to see the new display for the 2019 season.

We feel incredibly privileged to be welcoming the Reds back to Torbay once again, not to mention the Typhoon, Dakota, Hurricane and Spitfire. We’re also very excited to see what the Tucano can do, as it’s never been seen at the airshow before. With our RAF allocation now confirmed, airshow fans can now expect news of the civilian aircraft and display teams to be announced in the coming weeks and months.

The Red Arrows will also be performing at Weston Air Festival on June 22nd and 23rd, before returning to Plymouth for Armed Forces Day on June 29th.

Huge crowds gathered to watch the aerobatic team the last time they performed in the city in 2012, when Plymouth hosted the national Armed Forces Day event.

We are absolutely thrilled that the Red Arrows will be returning to Plymouth this summer, adding extra excitement to our already impressive Armed Forces Day line-up.

– Councillor Pete Smith, deputy leader of Plymouth City Council

They finish off their run of displays in the West Country with the Royal Navy International Air Day, Yeovilton on July 13, and the RIAT in Fairford, on July 19-21.
