THIS is when the Red Arrows will be taking to the skies of Sussex this week, and where you can see them.

The Royal Air Force aerobatic display team are due to perform as part of the Goodwood Festival of Speed in Chichester in West Sussex.

The public will be able to watch the first of their three 25-minute displays at noon on Friday, July 9.

On Saturday, July 10, the Red Arrows will perform at noon, followed by their last display at 11.50am on Sunday, July 11.

There are three types of display the Red Arrows team leader can elect to fly – full, rolling or flat.

To carry out a full, looping display the base of the cloud must be above 5,500ft to avoid the aircraft entering the cloud at the top of the loop.

If the cloud base is less than 5,500ft, but more than 2,500ft, the team will perform the rolling display and when the cloud base is below 2,500ft, the team will fly the flat display, consisting of a series of flypasts and steep turns.

The Blades, a civilian aerobatic team, will also fly over Goodwood during the festival.

The first flyover will be at 4pm on July 10, followed by another at 3.45pm on July 11.

Based at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire, the Red Arrows had flown almost 5,000 displays in 57 countries by the beginning of 2021.

The Red Arrows consists of 11 display pilots from front line Royal Airforce squadrons.

This year is the teams 57th season performing for crowds.
