Pictures: Red Arrows practise over Nottinghamshire

Fantastic display today at RAF Syerston from the RAF Red Arrows display team synchro-pairs.

Two aircraft carried out several passes of two different synchro-pairs exercises over the runway at the Nottinghamshire airfield. There’s a video coming soon!

The exercises were double-rolls and the corkscrew.

The CAA has granted a temporary Airspace change over RAF Syerston from until 17 April 2023.

This will be for the purpose of enabling the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team to practice low-flying training, owing to the closure of their previous operating base at RAF Scampton.
