    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.
    New recruits
    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.
    [​IMG] 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.

    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    Tried to locate the the application but could not find it.It looks as if it has been withdrawn...interesting.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!

    Police have passed a file to the Crown Prosecution Service after a Red Arrows aerial display team pilot died after he was ejected from his cockpit while on the ground.
    Lincolnshire Police confirmed they have handed over the file concerning the death of Flight Lieutenant Sean Cunningham.

    Sunday 1 September 2013

    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!
