Behind the scenes with the Red Arrows
Red Arrows announce new line-up
New Red Arrows pilot is announced
The Red Arrows have announced details of their new line-up for the 2013 display season.
The team will get three new pilots and return to a nine-ship formation after flying with seven for much of 2012.
This followed the deaths of Flt Lt Jon Egging and Flt Lt Sean Cunningham, who were both killed in separate incidents last year.
The team's first female pilot, Flt Lt Kirsty Stewart, moved to a ground-based role in March.
The three new pilots are: Flt Lt Mark Lawson, 34, from Harpenden - Flt Lt Steve Morris, 31 and Flt Lt Oliver Parr, 36, both from Bath.
The team also has a new manager, Sqn Ldr Ruth Shackleton. Sqn Ldr Jim Turner remains as team leader.
Pilots and support crew leaving the Red Arrows will return to operational duties with the Royal Air Force.
The new pilots will begin training as a nine-man team in mid-October
The new Red Arrows pilots all have a minimum of 1,500 flying hours and have been assessed as being above average ability. They have also completed at least one fast jet frontline tour of duty.
Training begins at RAF Scampton, in Lincolnshire, as soon as the last display of the current season is completed.
The Lincolnshire-based Red Arrows will move to a new base in the county for the remainder of their winter training.
The aerobatics display team is moving to RAF Cranwell from RAF Scampton whilst maintenance work is carried out.

I see where the MOD applied recently to the local authority,WLDC, for planning permission to sign write "The Red Arrows" on No 4 Hanger doors.....hangers are listed buildings.
Tried to locate the the application but could not find it.It looks as if it has been withdrawn...interesting.
Just thought I'd add that Steve Morris is one of my ex-student pilots. And a top bloke. Well done mate!
The future of the Red Arrows is safe as long as David Cameron is prime minister, Number 10 has said.
The guarantee over the RAF display team, which costs about £9m a year, emerged during the PM's trip to India.

When outdoors on Sunday morning 1 September 2013 I saw the Red Arrows flying over from the N.I. International Airshow at Portrush, presumably heading for displays at Chatsworth and Rhyl later in the day.
Unfortunately, not having my camera with me at the time I could not get a photograph!
Mrs took boys to this show today , http://www.greatwesternlegoshow.com/ , took pic of LEGO Red Arrow, thought I'd post here.
