Karachi to witness UK’s Red Arrows air acrobats

To celebrate 70 years of friendship between the United Kingdom and Pakistan, the Red Arrows aerobatics team is going to perform in Karachi on October 5.

The shows will begin after 2pm on Sea View Road and will also include a performance by the Pakistan Air Force’s JF-17 Thunder aircraft. “The blue skies of Karachi would turn red with the presence of Royal Air Force team which is famous for its jaw dropping formation aerobatics,” said a statement.

The Red Arrows is one of the world’s premier aerobatic display teams. Its members are considered to be the public face of the Royal Air Force. The Red Arrows first flew in 1965 and has since flown 4,800 missions around the globe, including a full display over Islamabad in 1997 and stopping to refuel in Karachi last year.

The team consists of more than 120 personnel, including pilots, engineers and essential support staff. Together, they demonstrate the excellence and capabilities of the Royal Air Force.
