The famous Red Arrows are set to fly over Devon tomorrow evening (Saturday) - and here are all the locations and times that you should be able to see them.

The RAF Aerobatics team, which have been performing displays worldwide for almost 60 years, are due to appear at the English Riviera Airshow on Saturday, June 1, and will be able to be seen at various points around the skies of Devon over a 40-minute period.

The eight-aircraft display is set to arrive at Exeter Airport just before 3pm, having travelled from RAF Brize Norton, in Oxfordshire.

They will then take off to begin their display at 5.25pm, flying over Cullompton at 5.27pm, and then heading west towards Halwill Junction, near Beaworthy, which they will pass at 5.32pm.

At 5.35pm, they should be visible further south, over St Mellion in Cornwall, before crossing the border back into Devon, where they will fly over Totnes at 5.39pm, and Torbay at 5.40pm.

They will finish their display over the English Channel just off the coast of Paignton, at 6.02pm, before coming back in to land at Exeter Airport at 6.07pm.

And those who miss the airshow display on Saturday might just be able to catch a glimpse of the Red Arrows as they depart from Exeter Airport on Sunday morning, taking off at 10.10am and flying north-east over Ottery St Mary at 10.12am, on their way back to RAF Brize Norton.

The English Riviera Airshow, held at Esplanade Road in Paignton, is free to attend, and promises an exciting programme of events on the ground, as well as spectacular and colourful displays in the air.

But those hoping to be wowed by the Red Arrows display over Devon tomorrow should note that routes and timings are subject to change, dependent on the weather.
