Red Arrows 'Ready To Return' Almost Two Years After Team's Last UK Air Show

The official Twitter of the Red Arrows has announced the display team is ready to perform after its pandemic hiatus.

The Red Arrows have been given the go-ahead to begin performing again, almost two years since their last UK air show.

Making the announcement on Twitter the official Red Arrows account said the RAF Aerobatic Team 2021 had been granted Public Display Authority and was preparing to resume events.

"It has been almost two years since the #RedArrows last performed at a UK airshow - but today the team has been told we're ready to return," the tweet said.

"Public Display Authority has been granted for the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team 2021.

"We can't wait to see you again!"

Last month the Red Arrows were preparing for the upcoming display season in Greece, planning for a full summer of shows if coronavirus restrictions allowed.

In the Mediterranean as part of Exercise Springhawk, they had been conducting three flights a day, five or six days a week.

The aerobatic team performs for global audiences, leaving behind vapour trails of red, white and blue as they fly the skies.

As well as displays, the team performs flypasts to mark commemorative events and recognise landmarks within the UK and military communities.
