One of the oldest and most famous stunt airshow teams in the world, the Red Arrows is affiliated with the UK’s Royal Air Force Central Flying School. It is to debut at the Airshow China 2016 in Zhuhai. 

In May 1965, the Red Arrows flew the Folland Gnat T1 jet trainer, painted red, in public for the first time. In 1980, the team introduced the BAE Hawk as a show aircraft, with red arrows decorating its sides.

The team has performed aerobatic skills and showcased the extreme capabilities, innovations, and adaptations of the armed forces during 4,725 displays in 56 countries, as of the end of 2015.
