The Red Arrows, the aerobatic team of the UK’s Royal Air Force (RAF), will paint the skies above the Expo on the day.

The Red Arrows’ distinctive Hawk fast-jets, known for their formation flying and colourful displays of synchronised smoke trails, will be visible over the Jubilee Park on Friday at 4pm for about 15 to 20 minutes.

The show is part of the UK Pavilion’s participation at Expo 2020 Dubai.

The Red Arrows are the public face of the RAF and assist in British Armed Forces recruitment, acting as an ambassador by performing at home and overseas.

They have been wowing the world since 1965 with their trademark ‘Diamond Nine’ shape and precision flying, and have flown almost 5,000 displays in 57 countries.
