The Midlands Air Festival, which starts today (Friday June 2) and runs until Sunday, will be returning to Ragley Hall.
The Royal Air Force Aerobatic team the Red Arrows, are set to make two appearances at the festival – with the first happening this evening.
Tonight, the Red Arrows are due to fly over the county at around 5.30pm as they head for their display for the event.
On Saturday they will return for another display but currently exact timings are unknown.
As well as the Red Arrows, there will be many more displays across the weekend, including from the Royal Air Force Typhoon front line jet fighter, The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and the Falcons Parachute Display Team.
The RAF participation is just one part of a much bigger air display featuring WWII warbirds, helicopters, classic jets, high energy aerobatics, wing walkers and formation teams.
Across the three days of the festival, visitors can also see the largest gathering of hot air balloons and airships in the UK; both tethered and flying in the mass ascents.
Included in the 200 balloons attending, will be several of the giant character ‘special shape’ balloons including the two Bertie Bassets, Astro the Alien, Tropsy the Dinosaur, two frogs and more.
