The Red Arrows over Flushing.: 2014 Display dates and venues. Falmouth Week. BAE Systems Hawk T1. Rolls Royce Adour.

Red Arrows over Flushing

The Red Arrows over Falmouth Harbour 

Cross-over manoeuvres

The Red Arrows have just delighted crowds in Falmouth with an awesome display of precision flying. At first pilots from the elite RAF Aerobatic Team flew in what seemed like terrifyingly close formation then broke off for cross-over manoeuvres at top speeds before regrouping to form patterns in the sky with red, white and blue vapour trails.




Dual control BAE Systems Hawk T1 jets painted red are used.  Hawk jets are made in Britain, and can fly at speeds of 600 miles per hour powered by Rolls Royce Adour engines which produce 5,200lbs of thrust.  .

Displays by the Red Arrows in the UK and overseas showcase British skill and technology, which lead to increased business,  employment and exports. The Red Arrows raise money for charity and inspire many people to join the Royal Air Force. 

The Red Arrows team is now in its 50th year, and is based at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire.
