Red Arrows announced for Newcastle Festival of Flight
The RAF Red Arrows have confirmed they will be displaying at the Newcastle Festical of Flight on June 22nd. This will be the only display by the team on the Island of Ireland in 2019. After the Royal International Air Tattoo at Fairford on 21st July, the team will depart to North America for the Western Hawk 19 tour. This means that they will be unavailable for the other major shows on the island at Bray and Portrush. The Red Arrows last displayed at Newcastle in 2017, they were due to display last year however poor weather forced the cancellation of the Festival of Flight 2018. The only other display confirmed so far for Newcastle this year is the Shorts Tucano.
