RED ARROWS TO RETURN TO GUERNSEY TO MARK THE CENTENARY OF CIVIL AVIATION IN GUERNSEY
News Release: Thursday 29 March 2019
2019 marks the centenary of civil aviation in Guernsey and the Red Arrows are confirmed to be part of the 2019 Guernsey Air Display that will now take place on Thursday 6 June 2019 to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the D-Day Normandy Landings.
The Red Arrows were never going to be able to be part of the Guernsey Air Display on its traditional September date, due to being on tour in the USA and Canada but a separate application for the new date of Thursday 6 June has been successful.
The 2019 Guernsey Air Display will take place between 11:00 and 13:15 (subject to final confirmation) over the skies of St. Peter Port..

News Release: Monday 22 October 2019
It has been announced that the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team - the Red Arrows - will be embarking on its first major tour of the US and Canada in more than twenty five years in August and September 2019. This tour of the US and Canada will preclude the Red Arrows from being available to display at Guernsey’s 2019 fifty second Air Display that will take place on Thursday 12 September 2019 from 11:00 to 13:15.
Organisers of the Guernsey Air Display had the foresight to offset any potential absence of the Red Arrows from the 2019 Guernsey Air Display by submitting a separate one-off display request for the Red Arrows to display in Guernsey on Thursday 6 June 2019.
This date was identified as being the most suitable as it is a weekday and does not conflict with existing established weekend Air Shows and Air Displays in the United Kingdom. Furthermore, the 6 June 2019 will mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day Normandy Landings that started with Operation Overlord on 6 June 1944.
