Flintshire has once again been treated to the spectacular sight and sound of the Red Arrows aerobatic team who were based at Hawarden Airport on Friday and Saturday. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The team arrived on Friday afternoon ahead of Saturday’s stunning display at Armed Forces Day celebrations in Llandudno. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Hundreds turned up to Broughton to watched the iconic red Hawk T1 jets depart and return to the airport. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The team also performed a flypast at Garden Village in Wrexham. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The superb photograph above was taken by Mark Atkins who captured the moment a Red Arrows engineer onboard one of the fast jets waves to those below at Hawarden Airport. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Here’s a selection of some of the photo’s sent to Deeside.com (and some we found) during the course of the day both from Hawarden and Llandudno . ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
