Red Arrows Show Off Manoeuvres Ahead Of Historic Tour
The Red Arrows have been showing off some of their most exciting manoeuvres, ahead of their biggest overseas tour in a decade.
 
From the 'corkscrew' to the 'goose', the footage shows the viewer what it's like to sit in the back of one of the famous jets.
 
It sees the passenger sitting at the rear doing an impressive job of holding the camera steady, under the pressure of g-force.
 
The new tour will see the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, as they're officially known, perform in China for the first time ever.
 
Starting with a flypast at RAF Scampton, they'll travel to Asia and the Middle East.
 
 
The RAF’s display team will showcase their world-famous aerobatics with displays and flypasts in countries including India, Malaysia and Singapore.
 
China will take the number of countries the display team has performed in to 57 since 1965.
