Video of Red Arrows over Anglesey shows RAF pilots' amazing skill

This video of the Red Arrows illustrates the pilots' astonishing skill and precision. It was taken as they put on an incredible display of flying virtuosity near RAF Valley on Friday.

In recent days this RAF aerial acrobatic team performed stunning displays with France’s Patrouille de France in Normandy to mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day. Then the team flew over Anglesey and on to stage another display over the Isle of Man TT motorcycle races.

Today they flew over Porthdinllaen and Trawsfynydd areas. This footage of their spectacular manoeuvres over Anglesey from Friday over Anglesey was taken by Jos Harrison on his mobile phone and posted on his account @josharrison1 on X, formerly Twitter.
