The Ministry of Defence has confirmed that the Red Arrows, the RAF Aerobatic Team, have been tasked to display at the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta on Friday, 31st August, 2012.
The Red Arrows will learn to fly in an unusual seven formation this year when the team leaves Lincolnshire for its annual training in Cyprus.
The team usually flies with nine aircraft but its first female pilot moved to a ground-based role earlier this month. Her move followed the death of two Red Arrows pilots last year.
The Red Arrows, normally based at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire, train in Cyprus for a number of weeks each year prior to the display season.
