The Red Arrows will continue their packed summer schedule on Sunday with a second display at Rhyl Airshow.
They have already delighted crowds at major events across the UK this summer, including Armed Forces Day, Trooping the Colour and the Royal International Air Tattoo – as well as the King’s coronation earlier in the year – and also performed on the first day of Rhyl Airshow on Saturday.
The team was forced to cancel scheduled displays at the Eastbourne Airshow in East Sussex and Cromer Carnival in Norfolk last week due to technical issues, but the problems have now been fixed.
Here’s how you can see the Red Arrows on Sunday, and their full calendar of events for the rest of summer.

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.
