The Royal Air Force's Red Arrows have returned from training in Greece to RAF Scampton ahead of the display season. 

On Wednesday, the Red Arrows were given official approval to fly at airshows across the world for the rest of the year.

The Arrows' official approval was awarded after completing their annual training - Exercise Springhawk - in Greece earlier this week. 

This year marks 100 years of the RAF and also the Red Arrows' 54th flying season. 

The Red Arrows will be making their first appearance of the season on 2 June at the Torbay Air Show in Paignton, in Devon before ending the season on 27 September by flying over Monaco.

Squadron Leader Mike Ling is re-joining the Squadron, to fly in the Red 3 position for the season.

Squadron Leader Ling will cover for Flight Lieutenant David Stark, who is recovering from an incident at RAF Valley in March, which led to the death of engineer Corporal Jonathan Bayliss.
