Red Arrows and the Royal Logistics Corps Silver Stars Parachute Display team

Red Arrows is only a flypast though, despite what some places are reporting

I'll be seeing them twice in the weeks before hand, so unless they arrive or depart via Newcastle I probably won't be seeing them on the 18th.

The organisers really need to make it very clear that the Reds are just doing a flypast, or there will be a mighty rumpus and people will be annoyed.

I was considering heading down for armed forces day but I was looking through the listing for the reds and they where only attending Scarboroughs (I think) armed forces day.

I just can't imagine what the traffic is going to be like. A decent Saturday in June is a nightmare in Banbridge with nothing special happening.

Did the Reds land at Aldergrove after all today?  Pretty sure I caught sight of them.

Yeah, landed after flypast and then took off again for flypast at Duxford.
