Red Arrows back in the skies over north Wales on Thursday
The Red Arrows make a return to the skies of north Wales tomorrow, Thursday 28th May just days after a spectacular visit to Deeside.
Bank holiday weekend saw the RAF’s formation team use Hawarden airport as a staging post for displays in Llandudno, Blackpool and a flypast the three Cunard liners on the river Mersey.
The Red’s will transit over parts of north Wales on Thursday as they head to and from a display at RAF Valley on Anglesey, where many of the Red Arrows pilots will have gained their first experience of flying the BAE Hawk T1.
The jets will fly over Wrexham in-formation coming from the direction of Crewe at approximately 11:47, over to Ruthin, Denbigh arriving at Valley just a few minutes later.
The team will perform a 26 minute ‘private’ display before heading back to base at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire.
The return flight times vary depending on published information, the Red Arrows own website shows that they will leave Valley after another flypast at 5pm which would mean they will be over Wrexham 5:10pm however, the NOTAM’s which are the filed flight plans show they will be back over Wrexham around 5:40pm – so its a case of take your pick, we’d lean towards the later though.
