Noting the restrictions currently in place on the UK population during the effort to combat the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Royal Air Force has suspended all displays from its various teams and bands until further notice. This suspension follows the similar announcement this week of the pause in the Red Arrows display season.

This decision will affect the following formations: Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, the Typhoon Display team, the Queen’s Colour Squadron, the Chinook Display team, the RAF Falcons, the Grob Tutor Display Team, RAF Music Services, all RAF voluntary bands, and the RAF Pipe Band.

No decision has been taken on this year’s display season for all RAF display teams. The RAF will work with event organisers and adapt to the rapidly changing situation as it develops.
