Route map, transit times and full schedule for Anglesey and Isle of Man TT

The Red Arrows kicked off a summer of spectacular displays last weekend as they put on a show at the Midlands Air Festival in Alcester.

It was their first full display of 2023 – though they did of course make an appearance at King Charles III’s coronation last month, streaking their famous red, white and blue smoke trails across the sky over Buckingham Palace as the Royal Family waved from the balcony.

On Thursday they will perform at the Isle of Man TT motorcycle racing event, and people who live in the West Midlands or northern Wales may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of them as they make their way to the island.

What are the Red Arrows?

The Red Arrows are the aerobatic display team of the RAF – officially known as the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team.

Formed in 1964, their flypasts have become must-see events, and the displays often grace major national commemorations.

Made up of nine red jets, they entertain crowds with their thrilling manoeuvres and perfect formation flying, often accompanied with red, white and blue smoke trailing behind them.

They were traditionally based at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire, but were relocated to RAF Waddington, in the same county, last year.
