The flight path indicates we should see them just after 3pm

As well as the lovely weather there’s another reason to look up to the skies above the Banbury FM area this afternoon.   We have a treat in store as the Red Arrows fly over us on their way to a display at the Isle of Wight Festival.

The display team, which is officially known as the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, are due to be making their way from RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire to Bournemouth Airport from 3pm.  

According to the Military Airshows website the aircraft should fly over Banbury at 3.14 this afternoon.   And clear blue skies are expected at the time.

The flight path indicates the planes will come into our area crossing Wardington before flying over the M40 and the Southam Road just below JDE’s factory.  After passing the southern side of Bretch Hill the Red Arrows will fly over Broughton Castle before heading off to the south-east.

The timings and route may change due to the weather or other requirements.
