Great Yarmouth Air Show Flying Schedule Announced

The Red Arrows will be flying between 3pm and 4pm on both days of the Great Yarmouth Air Show.

Organisers have announced the flying schedule, which features the crack RAF team at prime time on both the 16th and 17th June.

Ian Sheeley, Flying Display Director, said: “We normally build the schedule around the Red Arrows, who often have other shows to do on the day – but this time we are lucky, we have them to ourselves – which is very rare - and have been able to put them in a prime time slot for the maximum crowds.

“We shape the rest of the show around the Red Arrows, and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, which often has other commitments too, looking to provide a variety of displays for the crowds. It is looking like a really good line up for the first year."

The Red Arrows will be spending the weekend at Norwich Airport - they're usually based at Scampton in Lincolnshire.

More than 175,000 people are expected to flock to the seafront to watch the show, which is expected to boost the local economy by £10m.
