Red Arrows at Exeter Airport

Here are a few clips of the Red Arrows at Exeter Airport I took in 2009. Hard to believe now we used to have a fully functioning airport and aircraft both civil and military used to land daily!

The Red Arrows use the airport here as their base when conducting displays during summer tours in the South-West of England at such places as Dawlish, Torquay, Sidmouth, etc

Memories of happier times let’s hope they return one day.

Doing their stuff!

A Hawk in beautiful black livery also at RNAS Yeovilton
Hawk trainers were a common sight flying from RAF Valley on Anglesey home of No 4 Flying Training School to Exeter Airport.
