The Red Arrows will be flying over Wiltshire twice this weekend, following their D-Day 80th anniversary displays in Normandy.

On Saturday, June 8 they will take off from RAF Valley in Holyhead, Wales at 11am on a journey towards Bournemouth, giving local people the chance to spot them as they fly across Wiltshire.

They are expected to fly over Uffington in Oxfordshire at 11.39am, before heading past Swindon towards Lambourn at 11.40am, although these times may change.

The aerobatic display team will then reach Ramsbury at 11.41am, near Marlborough, reaching Burbage at 11.42am and Bradford on Avon at 11.45am – expected to reach Bournemouth at 11.53am.


But that won’t be the only chance to spot the Red Arrows on Saturday as the jets will also be flying near Chippenham and Bradford on Avon again in the evening on their way back from the Portsmouth AFD display.

On their journey to RAF Shawbury, they are expected to leave Bournemouth at 6.05pm, passing across Frome at 6.13pm, flying over Bradford on Avon and Chippenham, before reaching Brinkworth at 6.17pm, soaring over Royal Wootton Bassett, and heading towards Prestbury, passing Cirencester and near Cheltenham, at 6.20pm.
