The Red Arrows Display is Dynamic and Exciting, and involved many practiced manoeuvres that have been practiced and perfected throughout the Winter Months over the skies of Lincolnshire.
The Full Display involves nine Red Arrows Hawk T1 Jets Rolling, and Flying in various Formation Aerobatics in the sky. There are three types of display that the Red Arrows practice. These are to ensure a display can be carried out safely in a range of weather conditions. The displays are, Full, Rolling and Flat. For a full display to be carried out, the cloud base must be 5500ft. If the cloud base is less than 5500ft, and more than 2500ft a rolling display will be carried out. And if the cloud base is less than 2500ft a flat display will be carried out.
The Squadron leader will often make a decision on which display should be carried out upon entering the display area, by communicating with Red 10 on the ground.
During the display these sections split apart, fly in various formations, and make 'breaks' where they split the formation apart in a thrilling format.
Reds 6 and 7 split from Gypo, and fly opposition passes, where smoke and mirrors make them look as if they are flying directly at each other in front of the crowd.
The full display takes around 30 minutes, and centres around the famous Red Arrows Diamond 9, which is seen throughout the display. And a favourite, of recent years, is the Heart and Spear. This involves three reds, two making the shape of a heart in the sky, while the other pierces the centre of it.
