The Red Arrows will be visiting the North East later this year as part of their UK summer display dates for 2023.

The schedule was recently released and also announced that the team will be flying major flypasts with nine aircraft while aerobatic displays will be carried out using an eight-jet formation.

Three new pilots will be joining the team, taking up positions as Red 2, Red 3 and Red 4, according to the Royal Air Force website.

When will the Red Arrows be visiting the North East this summer?

Training is well underway ahead of the first display of the season next month but those in the North East will have to wait a little while longer to see the talented team in action.

The Red Arrows will be performing a public aerobatic display at the Great North Run in Newcastle and South Shields on Sunday, September 10.

The Great North Run website says: “60,000 determined and dedicated runners make the AJ Bell Great North Run the World’s biggest and best half marathon.”

British athlete and Olympian, Sir Mo Farah announced the run will be his last ever race as a professional athlete.

More details about the Great North Run are expected to be released soon.

What time will the Red Arrows be performing at the Great North Run?

The exact times of the aerobatic display will be confirmed by event organisers when available.

However, it’s important to note timings could be subject to change up until the event itself.

What display routine will the Red Arrows perform at the Great North Run?

The aerobatic display changes each year, but the 2023 routine is expected to be released this month once the Red Arrows have been granted Public Display Authority.

Last year the team performed movements such as Wall to 7 Arrow, Shuttle to Lightning, Boomerang, Tornado Present and many more.

More details about the Red Arrows including newly added event displays can be found on the RAF website.
