The world famous Red Arrows display team took to the skies above Peterhead on Tuesday evening as part of Peterhead Scottish Week celebrations having earlier been grounded by low cloud cover for the RAF Lossiemouth friends and family event.

The famed display team held on as long as possible for conditions to improve at Lossiemouth but low clouds put paid to the display for which large crowds had gathered around the base.

A typhoon was able to perform a fast speed solo display later in the afternoon with the team having flown into the base accompanying the Poseidon MRA1 (P-8A) for their first flight together.

There were no such problems at Peterhead, with the exception of severe congestion around the town at the end of the show, the aircraft were able to perform much of their display routine including the head-to-head fly past, sky-heart and tri-colour burst moves.
