The RAF's aerobatic team stopped off at the RAF base in Cyprus to refuel on their way to the United Arab Emirates.

RAF Akrotiri has said "Yaisou" – goodbye – to the RAF's Red Arrows team after their short stopover in Cyprus.

The Red Arrows recently performed at the Malta International Air Show, then made their way to the air base at Akrotiri to refuel and prepare for the next leg of their journey.

The team left Cyprus for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Thursday where they will help celebrate the UAE's 50th anniversary and represent the UK at Expo 2020 in Dubai.

The Red Arrows' official Twitter account posted images of the famous jets in the UAE on Thursday evening, saying: "Hello Dubai!"
