The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows, has been granted its Public Display Authority (PDA) and will be allowed to perform at events starting from this weekend.

The Royal Air Force Aerobatic’s Team first UK appearance for the 2010 season will be The Queen’s Birthday Flypast in London this Saturday (12 June), followed by a display at the Cosford Air Show in Shropshire on Sunday (13 June).

Red 1, Squadron Leader Ben Murphy, says: “We are delighted that we are able to start our display programme a week earlier than we previously planned. Our revised training schedule went well and we are all looking forward to starting the 2010 season.”
