The Red Arrows will be soaring over Swindon and Wiltshire later this afernoon.

The military display team is due to appear at the Royal International Air Tattoo this weekend - but before that, eagle-eyed fans can get a glimpse of the iconic aircraft as the jets travel between RAF Waddington and Bournemouth Airport this afternoon.

The talented pilots often cause excitement as they fly through the skies and many in Wiltshire often keep an eye out for their incredible aerial acrobatics when they travel over the county.

They will be flying north of Abindon on Thames at around 6.04pm before heading past Faringdon and cutting between Swindon and Marlborough, appearing south of Wroughton at 6.07pm, then continuing through Wiltshire towards Trowbridge, where they can be seen above Westwood at 6.11pm.

The Red Arrows will then soar southwards near Frome and Warminster as they leave the county and head to Sturminster Newton at 6.15pm before arriving at Bournemouth at 6.18pm.

Flying distinctive Hawk fast-jets, the team is made up of pilots, engineers and essential support staff with frontline, operational experience.
