Another important training milestone for the 2017 Red Arrows team, the first seven-aircraft formation of the year, was achieved today at Royal Air Force Scampton.
Training progresses at Royal Air Force Scampton for the 2017 team. Reds 6-9, who form the rear section of our formation, flew together today for the first time as a four-ship this year. Take a look at some the images from that sortie and the pilots walking back to debrief the flight.
Love is in the air this Valentine's Day. The Heart - precision flying and a popular feature of a display by the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows.

It's 48 years to the day since the Boeing 747 took to the skies for the first time. Here's an image of a flypast the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team did with a jumbo in 2009.
