The world’s only formation wingwalking display team is renowned for dazzling spectators at events throughout Europe and beyond.

Recent trips have seen the team displaying in front of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai,

at Aero India in Bangalore and in Japan for the Iwakuni Friendship Day.

The airshow event, which will feature the final ever North West appearance of the Vulcan XH558, is from 1.30pm to 4.30pm with further displays on Monday.
