Red arrows fly b-eye!

London, 1 April 2008
The Red Arrows are to fly over The London Eye to mark the 90th anniversary of the Royal Air Force (RAF) at 1.00pm on Tuesday 1 March.
To celebrate this important birthday the Royal Air Force Red Arrows will fly in formation with four Typhoon aircraft along the River Thames, for the first time.
The RAF and the London Eye welcomes guests and fellow Londoners to come and see the spectacle of the Red Arrows and Typhoon aircraft in this unique formation – to celebrate their birthday and say thank you to all our airmen and women who have served on operations, both in the past and today.
The flypast will start just south of London City Airport. Once the formation has flown over the London Eye it will continue over the Ministry of Defence, Green Park, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens.
