Red Arrows Confirmed for Scarborough's Armed Forces Day

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 3:03pm 27th March 2013.

A spectacular air display by The Red Arrows will take place in the skies above Scarborough on Armed Forces Day in the town.


The most recognisable aerobatics display team in the world will be showing off its trademark flying skills on Saturday 29 June.


An air display by RAF Typhoon fighter planes will also take place, along with a display by RAF Tutor aircraft and a flypast involving the historic Spitfire, Lancaster and Hurricane aircraft which make up the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.


In more aerial entertainment to be staged during Armed Forces Day, Scarborough will sea a Sea King helicopter flypast and a display by the Ravens parachute team, while on the ground, there will be performances by the renowned Military Wives Choir, veterans’ parade, a special beach boot camp and dozens of stalls and activities for all the family.


Cllr Tom Fox, Leader of Scarborough Borough Council and chairman of Scarborough’s Armed Forces Day steering group, said: “To secure The Royal Air Force Red Arrows is a huge coup for Scarborough and shows how highly regarded nationally our Armed Forces Day celebrations have become.


“It’s difficult to predict the number of people that will attend, but we anticipate there will be many thousands on the seafront over the course of the day if the weather is good, which would be an enormous show of support for our Armed Forces personnel.


“As we have done every year since the very first Armed Forces Day in 2009, we want to raise awareness of their outstanding contribution to the wellbeing of this country and say thank you to those men and women from the Armed Forces community, including serving personnel and their families, veterans and the town’s cadet forces, for all that they do.”
