The Red Arrows are renowned throughout the world as ambassadors for both the Royal Air Force and the United Kingdom. Since the Team was officially formed in 1965, the Red Arrows have completed over 4,000 displays in 53 countries.
The Red Arrows’ reputation is built on the commitment and professionalism, combined with Royal Air Force skills, training and equipment. Watching one of their displays is the only way to fully appreciate the unprecedented skill with which these pilots fly.
These images were photographed in the idyllic location of Lyme Bay in Dorset, however a tragic accident that led to the death of Flt. Lt. Jon Egging (Red 4) on Saturday 20th August at Bournemouth, Dorset serves as a stark reminder of the risks involved. As a small token of condolence, these images are dedicated to his memory and the thousands of people he and his teammates have wowed with their aerobatic skills.
