Red Arrows flying in for north coast aerial display

By Staff Reporter

The Red Arrows are set to take to the skies over the north Antrim coastline as part of the largest airshow on the island of Ireland.

Around 200,000 spectators are expected at Air Waves Portrush this Saturday and Sunday for a packed programme of aerial entertainment.

The stellar line-up will include the world-famous RAF Red Arrows, who will perform their trademark formations, close-passes and dynamic loops.

Visitors can expect to fly back in time with the sights and sounds of the Battle of Britain Memorial trio of Spitfire, Lancaster and Hurricane.

Also hotly anticipated are jaw-dropping manoeuvres from a Typhoon jet, breathtaking aerobatics from the Wildcats display team and the thrills and spills of the colourful Muscle Bi-plane.

There will also be a Vietnam era Huey and a Cold War fighter, the Soviet MiG-15 UTI, known as the Midget.
