On this day in 1965….

I believe the first time I saw The Red Arrows was at a family day at RAF Oakington, or possibly Waterbeach. If I had to put a time it would be early 1970s. Luckily for me my Dad worked for The PSA who oversaw a lot of the maintenance of Government Buildings as they were known back then.

Thanks Kev for sharing this great picture.

‪On this day in 1965, the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team completed its first UK public display, at Biggin Hill. Since then, the Red Arrows have clocked up nearly 4,900 more. Here’s a photograph of our original aircraft, the Folland Gnat, from yesteryear. #RAF100‬
