Plane-lovers will have several chances to see the Red Arrows flying above Northamptonshire in the space of just three days.

The aerobatics team has a busy few days ahead, thanks to several aerial displays across the UK.

On Friday (July 1), the iconic planes will fly from their base at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire to Exeter ahead of two southern air shows on Saturday (July 2).

The Red Arrows will fly over Northamptonshire several times this weekend.

As the team transits from base down south, they will pass over Northampton. They are expected to be seen over the south east of the town at approximately 3.33pm.

Following displays in Teignmouth and Wales on Saturday, the team will bed down at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire, before making a return to Northamptonshire on Sunday (July 3) for a display at the British Grand Prix.
