Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the “Red Arrows” – Acknowledged as one of the world’s premier aerobatic teams, the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, The Red Arrows, is the public face of the Royal Air Force. The team are renowned throughout the world, acting as ambassadors of Great Britain. They promote the professional excellence of the Royal Air Force, assist in recruiting into the Royal Air Force, contribute to Defence Diplomacy when displaying overseas and support wider British interests through the promotion of British industry by demonstrating the capabilities of its equipment and expertise.

Royal Air Force Battle of Britain Memorial Flight – Today the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight is a household name and a national institution but the modern BBMF was created from humble beginnings and though it paid the same mark of respect it did so under tight constraint. It has gone from being a loose collection of ‘obsolete types’ tucked away in the corner of various hangars, to a dedicated unit with its own headquarters, entrusted with caring for priceless assets of British aviation heritage.

RAF Falcons Parachute Display TeamThe Falcons are a unique Team, and we’re proud to be widely recognised as the UK’s premier military Parachute Display Team. As this years season approaches, we’re looking forward to performing our unique, colourful and courageous aerial display at events worldwide, starting in May and continuing right through to October.

RAF Chinook Display TeamThe Chinook Display Team is made up of personnel from both 18(B) and 27 Squadrons, and is supported by a team of engineers from 18/27 Engineering Squadron, all based at RAF Odiham

RAF Typhoon Display Team – The team, from 29(R) Squadron, comprises a specialist from every aircraft trade along with support and management teams to assist both the pilot and the trades, all of whom work closely together to bring you the dazzling spectacle that is the Typhoon Display.

RAF Tucano Display Team – The 1 FTS (Flight Training School) display is flown using the Belfast made Shorts Tucano T1. It is primarily used as part of the RAF/Navy Basic Fast Jet Training (BFJT) course and by Weapon Systems Officers (WSOs) as part of the Air Navigation course (TANS), both conducted at RAF Linton on Ouse near York.
