Coun Tom Fox, leader of Scarborough Borough Council and chairman of Scarborough’s Armed Forces Day steering group, said: “To secure The Royal Air Force Red Arrows is a huge coup for Scarborough.”

An air display by RAF Typhoon fighter planes will also take place, along with a display by RAF Tutor aircraft and a flypast involving the historic Spitfire, Lancaster and Hurricane aircraft which make up the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

There will also be a Sea King helicopter flypast, while on the ground, there will be performances by the Military Wives Choir and a veterans’ parade. For further information, email: [email protected]
