The Red Arrows return to Deeside today, they will use Hawarden airport for the second time in three days as a staging post for two display in the north West.

The worlds greatest formation flyers will land at Hawarden around 11.20am today.

Taking off at 1.42pm they will head over Flint to Rhyl, transiting out to sea, the team will perform a spectacular flypast along the river Mersey over the three Cunard liners assembled on the Mersey for the Cunard Three Queens celebrations at 1.50pm

They will then head to Blackpool for a 2pm display lasting twenty minutes or so, then they transit back over the sea heading back to Hawarden via Mold and landing at 14.31pm.

Engineers will check over the jets at Hawarden for a couple of hours, before they take off again at 4.45pm again heading over Flint, Ruthin and onto a flypast at Beacon Park in Litchfield and back home to RAF Scampton 5.18pm.

For those who will be West of Wrexham on Thursday, look up around 5.40pm as they will pass overhead flying in formation following an earlier flypast at RAF Valley.

*Times as always may change, so don’t shout at us if they do but as it stands those are the formation flight plans for the Red Arrows over the forthcoming bank holiday weekend.
