Wiltshire residents caught a glimpse of the iconic Red Arrows when they flew across the county ahead of a national celebration.

The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows, flew from RAF Waddington near Lincoln to Bournemouth Airport on Wednesday, June 5, ahead of the National D-Day 80 Commemoration Event at Southsea Common.

During their journey, the five-aircraft team soared across the Wiltshire sky, passing over towns and villages including Chippenham, Corsham, Bradford on Avon, Upper Minety, and Great Somerford.

The planes were later spotted landing at Bournemouth Airport upon their arrival.

The Red Arrows is one of the world's premier aerobatic display teams and serves as a public face of the Royal Air Force. 

Wiltshire residents may have another chance to see them later this year when they take to the skies at RAF Fairford near Swindon.

The group will showcase a new routine during the annual Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT), being held from Friday, July 19, to Sunday, July 21.
