Bristol International will play host to the Red Arrows this weekend (Saturday 9th August) as the renowned RAF aerobatic team touch down at the airport in readiness for a display at the Bristol Balloon Fiesta on Sunday. The Arrows’ ten Hawk aircraft will call in at Bristol International en route, making an unusual addition to the passenger aircraft more commonly seen at the airport.
Expected at 17:32 on Saturday, The Red Arrows usually land using one of four potential formations, known as ‘breaks’, including a low level overflight prior to landing. They will then take off at 15:45 on Sunday to carry out the Balloon Fiesta display, returning to the airport before departing later that evening.
Eleanor King, Airside Operations Coordinator at Bristol International Airport, said:
“It will be a thrill for staff and local aviation enthusiasts to see the Red Arrows in action here at Bristol International. We look forward to welcoming them to the airport.”
