Everyone loves to see the Red Arrows glide through the Essex air, whether you are in an open field or near your house.
People can see a number of spectacular aircraft overhead when they fly at the Clacton 150th Anniversary event on Thursday (August 26) and Friday (August 27).
The Red Arrows and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF) will feature at the display show that has replaced the annual Clacton Airshow because of COVID-19 restrictions.
The show will only be a flight only event as the full air show is not happening this year. However, organisers have promised a full show on August 25 and 26 2022, consisting of trade, ground events, entertainment and programmes.
Although the show will be limited families can still be treated to World War aircraft and fast diamond formation jets exhausting either red, white or blue smoke.

According to the event website, the event will be at the Clacton Seafront.
