The Red Arrows will arrive in B.C. on Tuesday as the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team makes the final stops on its biggest-ever North American tour.
The UK-based team will touch down at Vancouver International Airport at noon ahead of events planned for Victoria and Vancouver on Thursday.
The Red Arrows will perform a flypast over Victoria harbour at approximately 4:40 p.m. on Thursday before doing the same over Vancouver’s Harbour at 5 p.m.
A series of events is taking place in Vancouver this week to mark the visit including the screening of the UK documentary Red Arrows: Kings of the Skies followed by a Q&A with members of the team at Science World at TELUS World of Science on Tuesday.
“Throughout the Red Arrows’ North American tour, the response of everyone in Canada to our displays, flypasts and ground events has been overwhelming,” said Wing Commander Andrew Keith, Officer Commanding, Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team.
“It will be brilliant to conclude our time in Canada by performing flypasts in Victoria and Vancouver.”
The Red Arrows will have made stops in more than 20 cities in North America, including four in Canada, over the past 11 weeks.
