The Royal Air Force Red Arrows have flown with the Vulcan bomber for the final time in a show of great British aviation icons. Jets from the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team performed a flypast with the mighty Cold War aircraft at the Southport Air Show, on Britain’s north-west coast on 19 September.
Thousands of people cheered and waved as the Red Arrows’ nine distinctive
British- built Hawk aircraft made a V-shape ahead of the Vulcan. This striking formation flew over water, along the coast, having joined up over the sea about ten miles from Prestatyn. It was the highlight of the air show, at which both the Vulcan and Red Arrows also displayed individually.
