THE RED Arrows flew over Rugby this afternoon.

Hayley Sterne took these photos of the world-famous Royal Air Force aerobatic display team

as they flew in formation over GEC field in Hillmorton just before 1pm.

The distinctive Hawk fast-jets approached from the south east over Barby and Kilsby, before heading over Rugby and continuing north west in the direction of Long Lawford, Newbold, Brinklow and Stretton.

With their combination of close formations and precision flying, the Red Arrows have been displaying since 1965 and have flown around 4,900 displays in 57 countries.
