The precision aerobatics display team of the royal air force. Widely regarded as one of, if not the best display team in the world. Their most famous manouver is almost undoubtedly the 'diamond 9' formation.
The red arrows use BAE hawk trainer jets that are light, nimble and agile. Their livery is, unsurprisingly, red.
Often use red, white and blue smoke trails to create mesmerizing effects.
Another famous manouver, so exciting it is now used by other aero-display teams as well, is the high-speed pass, whereby two jets speed directly towards eac other from opposite ends of the airfield, seemingly on a collision course. As they meet in the center, the jets tip their wings 90 degrees in opposing directions, and by so doing passing each other with inches to spare.
The red arrows, in displays, are absolutely stunning. Undoubtedly one of the list of 50 things to do/see before you die!!
