The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the RAF Red Arrows, have successfully completed a five-week tour of the Gulf region and Egypt. The tour took in six countries and supported a range of UK interests across defence, trade, education and business.

In addition to the trademark displays that wowed the crowds, the team also undertook flypasts with a variety of other aircraft over prominent landmarks and high profile events.
On the ground, the team delivered a busy programme of youth engagement events to inspire the next generation of aviators and engineers. The theme of these events were science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), and women in engineering.
