The Red Arrows will be flying over a number of locations in the UK on its way to Wembley this evening.

The acrobatic planes will start at Bournemouth at 7.27pm before travelling over Wiltshire, Berkshire, Oxfordshire and South Bucks as they make their journey towards London.

It will take them 21 minutes to reach Wembley from Bournemouth and then the squadron will fly over Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire on the route back to their base in Lincolnshire.

The RAF iconic display is set to fly over Wembley Stadium at 7.48pm.

Around 65,000 fans are expected to cheer on the squad at Wembley, in one of the biggest crowds at a sporting event since the pandemic began. Millions more fans will watch anxiously on screens around the country.
