The renowned Red Arrows are scheduled to grace the skies over Devon tomorrow. So here are all the details on where and when you can catch a glimpse of them.

The RAF Aerobatics team, with nearly six decades of worldwide performances under their belt, are set to make an appearance at the English Riviera Airshow in Torbay on Saturday, June 1. They will be visible in various parts of Devon's sky for a span of 40 minutes.

The eight-aircraft spectacle is expected to reach Exeter Airport just shy of 3pm, having embarked from RAF Brize Norton, Oxfordshire. Their display is set to kick off at 5.25pm, soaring over Cullompton at 5.27pm, before heading west towards Halwill Junction, near Beaworthy, which they are slated to pass at 5.32pm.

By 5.35pm, they should be spotted further south, hovering over St Mellion in Cornwall, before crossing back into Devon, where they will fly over Totnes at 5.39pm, and Torbay at 5.40pm, reports Devon Live.

Their performance will conclude over the English Channel, just off the coast of Paignton, at 6.02pm, before making their way back to land at Exeter Airport at 6.07pm.

For those who miss out on Saturday's airshow display, there might be another chance to spot the Red Arrows as they depart from Exeter Airport on Sunday morning. They're scheduled to take off at 10.10am and fly north-east over Ottery St Mary at 10.12am, en route back to RAF Brize Norton.

The English Riviera Airshow, taking place at Esplanade Road in Paignton, is open to all without charge, and offers a thrilling line-up of ground events, alongside awe-inspiring and vibrant aerial displays.

However, enthusiasts looking forward to the Red Arrows spectacle over Devon tomorrow should be aware that schedules and flight paths may alter, depending on weather conditions.
