They’ll be doing a loop, coming down to London past the Hertfordshire/Essex border, and coming back over Essex, flying over Brentwood on their way up into Suffolk.
The Royal Airforce Aerobatics Team (The Red Arrows) have been training all year for the summer’s performances, practicing their famous formations, loops and displays.
