Red Arrows will be soaring above Guernsey later this week, as the air display is taking place a bit earlier in the year than it usually would.
The display has been bought forward because the team will be on tour later in the year, and not able to make the usual September date. But, with the display set take place at lunchtime on Thursday, 6 June, the event has neatly timed itself to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
It was decided to move the air display to this month because the organisers felt the Red Arrows were the biggest draw, and the display would not be the same without them.
The air display will start at 11:00 and run through until 13:15. As usual, a huge amount of effort has gone in to organising the event, with approximately £60,000 needed each year to cover the costs, for fees of participating aircraft, insurance, fuel and accommodation.
Alongside the arrows, the display will also include the 'Cheeky Champ', Team Raven, Bader's Bus Company and the Muscle Bi-plane.
The Red Arrows will go last, expected to start at 12:30.
