Red arrows return to the home of the hawk this august bank holiday

The public face of the RAF, the Red Arrows, will be delighting Wings & Wheels visitors on Saturday 26th August as the team headline the 2017 air display at Dunsfold Aerodrome in Surrey.

Flying the distinctive Hawk jets, which flew off the production line at Dunsfold Aerodrome in 1974 in the hands of Duncan Simpson, the Hawk is the Royal Air Force’s advanced trainer and has been used by the Red Arrows since 1979. The squadron is renowned across the world for displaying a nine-ship formation of the British-built fast-jets.

The display is the result of nearly eight months' intensive training each year, the majority of this completed during the winter months at RAF Scampton, Lincolnshire. Three of the display pilots are brand new to the team for 2017 – Flight Lieutenants Toby Keeley, Dan Lowes and Chris Lyndon-Smith. Chris returns for a second tour with the Red Arrows and will fly this season as Red 5. Toby and Dan will form up on either side of Red 1, flying as Reds 2 and 3. Typically, air crew spend three years as a Red Arrows pilot. Each of the pilots has fast-jet operational experience flying the Tornado or the Typhoon.

The first half of the Red Arrows’ display consists of synchronised,formation aerobatics, followed by a more dynamic second half. Reds 1 to 5 form the front section of the team’s formation, known as Enid, and Reds 6 to 9 make up the rear part, called Gypo. The Synchro Pair, Reds 6 and 7, perform the highly-popular opposition manoeuvres during the latter section of the show. During a display, Red 10 acts as the team’s Supervisor who maintains two-way radio contact with the Team Leader. He also provides the informative and entertaining commentary.

APACHE SET FOR EXPLOSIVE DISPLAY AT WINGS & WHEELS

The Apache Attack Helicopter Display Team will be exploding onto the aerodrome this August Bank Holiday when the solo display joins the Wings & Wheels line-up on Saturday 26th at Dunsfold Aerodrome in Guildford, Surrey.

Whilst treating visitors to heart stopping aerobatic manoeuvres, the team will also be demonstrating the might of the helicopter’s fire power. In a series of simulated air to ground missile attacks using the aptly named Hellfire missiles, rockets and a 30mm chain gun, this display is not for the faint hearted as it culminates in fire balls and explosions!

The unmissable Typhoon will #bringthenoise2017 to Wings & Wheels on Saturday 26th at the historic setting of Dunsfold Aerodrome, near Guildford in Surrey as the team joins the air display line-up.
*
Flight Lieutenant Ryan Lawton will be demonstrating the incredible agility and power the aircraft has to offer, and which allows the Royal Air Force to deliver combat air power wherever and whenever it is required. It’s definitely a crowd and team favourite!
*
Jamie McAllister, Event Director comments: “The Typhoon is no wall flower and the display at Wings & Wheels will be an incredible mix of noise and power. Ear plugs are a must for this unmissable addition to the air display line-up!”
*
The Typhoon’s performance is the culmination of months of hard work, detailed preparation and concerted effort by the team behind the display. The display pilot cannot do his job without the unfaltering commitment and backing of the dedicated group of professionals that make up the Typhoon Display Team.
*
Every member of the team has been hand-picked from what is already an elite cadre of skilled personnel at RAF Coningsby. This year’s 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 the dazzling spectacle that is the Typhoon Display.
*
The Typhoon Force, at Coningsby and RAF Lossiemouth, is responsible for the defence of UK airspace, known as Quick Reaction Alert (QRA). The Force also maintains QRA in the Falkland Islands. The Typhoon is a multi-role combat aircraft, capable of performing the full spectrum of air operations: from air policing, to peace support through to high intensity conflict. The Typhoon Display aircraft is used by the Typhoon Force element of the RAF to demonstrate the utility of the multi-role Typhoon.*
