The world-famous aerobatic team the Red Arrows will be performing high above the Abu Dhabi Corniche this afternoon.

The display will begin at 3.15pm – weather permitting - and will last approximately 25 minutes. It will demonstrate the very best of the pilots’ skills and precision flying, organisers say.

The Red Arrows, officially known as the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, performed earlier this week at the Dubai Airshow and are in the UAE as part of a five-week tour of the Middle East.

The nine display pilots of the Red Arrows form part of an elite part of the UK’s Royal Air Force.

They have all previously taken part in active service and have flown Royal Air Force fast jets such as the Typhoon multi-role combat aircraft.

Following their display in Abu Dhabi, the Red Arrows will be flying at the Al Ain Aerobatic Show over the National Day weekend between November 30 and December 2, National Day.
