The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team will perform at the Bahrain International Airshow for the first time next week, as part of a visit to the Gulf to promote UK interests.

Audiences at the major aerospace and business event will enjoy a series of world-class performances by the Red Arrows over three days.

The displays and associated ground engagements are an opportunity to further develop the longstanding diplomatic, military and trade relations between the Kingdom of Bahrain and the United Kingdom.

Three-day display

“Bahrain is a beautiful place to fly,” said Wing Commander David Montenegro at a press conference prior to the start of the show, adding that it was “special to be able to do three full display days for an international audience”.

The team will perform on the 9th, 10th and 11th November.

Over the last 10 years, the Bahrain International Airshow has established itself as a leading event for aviation with over 50,000 trade visitors expected and some 215 military and civilian delegations expected to be in attendance this year.
