Red Arrows Confirmed

The Capel Military Show team is thrilled to confirm that the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Display Team, The Red Arrows, will close the show on Friday 5th July.

Helping us celebrate the shows very first three-day event, the Reds will be overhead at approximately 16:00 on Friday for a flypast.

The Red Arrows are also celebrating this year with their 60th season in the famous red Hawks and as one of the world’s premier aerobatic display teams.

Representing the speed, agility and precision of the Royal Air Force, the team is the public face of the service. They assist in recruiting to the Armed Forces, act as ambassadors for the United Kingdom at home and overseas and promote the best of British.

Flying distinctive Hawk fast-jets, the team is made up of pilots, engineers and essential support staff with frontline, operational experience. Together, they demonstrate the excellence and capabilities of the Royal Air Force and the Service’s skilled, talented people.

All Red Arrows display pilots have flown operationally, in frontline aircraft such as the advanced Typhoon, and helped the Royal Air Force to secure the skies every day of the year.

Based at RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire, the Red Arrows had flown almost 5,000 displays in 57 countries, by the beginning of 2024.

NB: The flypast is subject to weather and operations.
