Scene around… The Red Arrows

To commemorate 100 years of the Royal Air Force, Hastings witnessed the magnificent spectacle of the Red Arrows and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight aircraft yesterday afternoon.

Conditions were almost perfect and the crowds that gathered on the beach, on the pier and on the east and west hills were not disapponted.

Later today, at 12.30pm a series of fly-pasts from the Spitfire, Hurricane, Lancaster between the Pier and harbour arm will take place.

There will also be classic and vintage cars and a market on the pier.

Meanwhile here is a pictorial memory of yesterday’s events, pictures courtesy of Sid Saunders.
