Red Arrows set for return to Leuchars

The Battle of Britian Memorial Flight (BBMF) and the Red Arrows will provide pageantry and panache to the skies over Fife on September 15 as part of the flying display programme for this year's RAF Leuchars Jubilee Air Show: A Diamond Celebration.

The Red Arrows will be displaying with their Hawk aircraft as part of a strong representation of current RAF assets including key operationally focused aircraft such as Typhoon and Tornado GR4 in a flying display programme that showcases the excellence of the RAF and its equipment.

Airshow director, Squadron Leader Jon Greenhowe, said: "The Red Arrows and the Battle of Britian Memorial Flight are firm crowd favourites and we are delighted that they will be joining us on September 15.

"That date is recognised as Battle of Britian day so it is particularly appropriate that the BBMF should be part of our display marking the contribution of "The Few" in this very special Diamond Jubilee year.

"The Red Arrows are acknowledged as one of the world's premier aerobatic teams and their thrilling display, in their 48th season, will be a treat for what we hope will be a bumper crowd as we celebrate the contribution of the armed forces during Her Majesty the Queen's 60 year reign."

Further flying and static display aircraft for the show will be confirmed in due course.
