Those heading to the Island’s northern coast this weekend may well catch a glimpse of the iconic Red Arrows, who are set to fly across the Isle of Wight in formation on their way to Bournemouth.

A sight that is usually reserved for large Summer events will behold those who look to the sky at around 11.40 tomorrow (Saturday) as the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Display Team make their transit from their base at RAF Scampton, past Wootton Bassett and over Windsor Castle before heading on to Bognor Regis and then Bournemouth.

The activity will be part of a long day of events as the team display in Cornwall as part of the G7 Summit later in the afternoon.

The Island flypast will be one of the first opportunities to see the Red Arrows since before lockdown, with the team only recently being given the Public Display Authority by RAF chiefs needed to begin their display season.

It’s thought that the legendary Hawk jets will traverse the Island between 11:40 and 11:50 tomorrow morning, although there may be some variation to the timings – so be on the lookout! It is likely that the Red Arrows will be visible from Ryde, East Cowes and Cowes.

More unwanted and unnecessary carbon and noise pollution me thinks!
