2014 marks the 50th display season for the RAF Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows. The Red Arrows first official display was on 6th May 1965 at a media event at RAF Little Rissington in Gloucestershire, England.
I hear you say that’s only 49 years ago and you’d be right. RAF tradition is that it is the number of display seasons, rather than the Team’s anniversary or formation, therefore it is being marked this year in 2014. So. Happy 50th Display Season to the Red Arrows.
