Pilots have begun training for the Red Arrows displays scheduled across the UK, including near Southampton, for 2022 and this year the displays will be different.

The official Red Arrows Twitter page shared a post which explains that instead of nine aircrafts being involved in the displays, there will be seven as two of the team members won’t be taking part this time around.

The Royal Air Force website confirms that the two Red Arrows members that are no longer part of the displays “have moved to other roles within the RAF.”

The Red Arrows won’t be taking part in upcoming displays in Southampton this year however, there are some displays happening nearby.

If you’re wondering where you can see the Red Arrows this summer, look no further.
