Officially known as the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the UK’s Red Arrows will perform in UK-built aircraft over Abu Dhabi Corniche on November 24 at 4pm.

The display will last 24 minutes and will include such popular moves as the “heart and spear” and the “corkscrew”.

The Red Arrows, a team of nine display pilots and more than 100 support personnel and technicians, are in the UAE as part of their biggest overseas tour in a decade. They have already visited 17 countries including Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Singapore, Malaysia, China, Oman and Bahrain. The team’s final stop will be in Kuwait before heading back home. This year is the team’s 52nd display season.

One of the best places to watch from is the F1 Fanzone at West Plaza on Abu Dhabi Corniche.
