Can anybody please answer any of the following questions:-

1) When do the Red Arrows return to the UK? (I know it is before 31st May as they are doing a display in the UK on that day).

2) Is there a timetable available for Akrotiri training sessions?

3) Where is the best place to watch practice sessions?

Thanks for any info.

Are they still there?

The link here only mentions the 6th May...all the other info you ask should be here..plus their show dates in the UK and elsewhere.

We're going to Cosford on 8th June, it's usually a really good air show. Trouble is queuing to get in and off Rolling Eyes takes ages...it's very popular.

You could always make some nice ones from paper and chuck em about the house. Would save the tax payer a lot of money if we binned them!

Maybe but it's probably the RAF's best recruitment tool.

Not quite right, SBS. Having made this post I followed up the website which was suggested earlier and e-mailed the 'contact us' address given.

This is the reply received today:-

Many thanks for your e-mail.



We are scheduled to carry out training today and Monday before our Public Display Authority on Tuesday. The times for today are:-


1100hrs – Wreck

1330hrs – Cliffs

1600hrs – Cliffs


Monday’s timings will be posted on the Red Arrows website and the RAF Akrotiri HIVE Facebook page when known.
