THE Red Arrows will fly in a V-formation salute with a Boeing 747 at this summer’s Biggin Hill International Air Fair.

Flying their nine Hawk T1 jets, the RAF aerobatic team will be appearing on both days of the show on the weekend of June 27 and 28.

On the Sunday the nine-ship team will fly in a V-formation with a Virgin Atlantic Boeing 747-400 to mark the 25th anniversary of when the airline was launched by Richard Branson.

Mr Branson, who is president of Virgin Atlantic, said: “This is a welcome and valued honour for our 25th birthday and I am very proud that one of our fleet Boeing 747s will be performing a flypast at Biggin Hill with the world-famous Red Arrows team.”
