The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows is one of the world’s leading aerobatic teams. Representing the speed, agility and precision of the Royal Air Force, the team is the public face of the service. Flying distinctive Hawk fast jets, the team consists of pilots, engineers and key support staff with front-line operational experience. Since 1965, the Red Arrows have often sported their signature Diamond Nine shape and a combination of tight formations and precise flying.
A Typhoon exhibit is the culmination of months of hard work, detailed preparation and concerted effort by the team behind the display. Although it is the pilot who demonstrates the aircraft, he cannot even begin his role without the unwavering commitment and support of the dedicated group of professionals who make up the Typhoon Display Team. This year’s team at 29 Squadron is made up of specialists from every aircraft industry working alongside support and management teams to bring you the dazzling spectacle of the Typhoon display. The team looks forward to the unique challenges of a show season and the opportunity to showcase the Royal Air Force’s Typhoon aircraft to the public.
