A team of aerobatic pilots from the United Kingdom will visit Dayton next month for a series of events.
The Royal Air Force’s Red Arrows will be landing in Dayton Sept. 5, according to a press release from the group’s North American Tour.
The team will fly their Hawk T1 jets into Dayton and will also make stops in several other U.S. and Canadian cities as part of their tour. They will not be performing in the skies over Dayton.
While in Dayton, the Red Arrows pilots will be meeting with high school students from the Dayton Regional STEM School. The Red Arrows will also host several other private events throughout the day.
The tour is the Red Arrows’ largest ever in Canada and the United states, according to the organization.
The team consists of 11 pilots, nine of whom fly in the display, and more than 100 support personnel and technicians. The Red Arrows had completed nearly 5,000 displays, in 57 countries, by the beginning of 2019.
