Red Arrows and more likely to be flying over Redditch this weekend

LOOK to the skies later today as there are strong rumours that the Red Arrows will be flying over Redditch and Studley at around 6.15pm this evening and tomorrow, Saturday , just before 1pm.

The RAF display team are taking part in the Midlands Air Festival at Ragley Hall this weekend.

Local police have also issued a travel warning for people travelling by the local landmark over the two day festival as delays are likely.

Joining the RAF Red Arrows on display will be the RAF Typhoon Display Team, Battle of Britain Spitfire and the RAF Falcons parachute team who are all scheduled to feature at this year’s event.

The director of aviation for the event, Trevor Graham said, “We are delighted and honoured to have so many of the nation’s top military and civilian aviators to support us and fly for the people of the Midlands.

“What better way to blow away the lockdown blues than a stunning day out in the wide-open spaces of the historic Ragley Hall with the best of the best!”
