The spectacular Red Arrows flew over Lancashire today – to the delight of fans.

The RAF Red Arrows team were based at Blackpool Airport today as they jetted off for their display at the Isle of Man Airshow.

While the fantastic aerobatic team didn’t put on a display in Lancashire, people were invited to “make a day of it” and come to Blackpool Airport to get a glimpse of them.

The team arrived at 11.30am and left for the Isle of Man Airshow at 2.12pm.

They then flew back into Blackpool Airport at around 3pm, and they’re due to depart again at 5.30pm today.

LancsLive took a trip to Blackpool Airport to capture some images of the wonderful Red Arrows and their team including pilots, the Circus, engineers and support crews.
