Red Arrow on display National Museum of FlightAdd to Lightbox Download
National Museums Scotland has acquired a British Aerospace Hawk T1A which was flown by the Royal Air Force (RAF) Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows.
The iconic aircraft has been donated by the Ministry of Defence through RAF Heritage and will go on permanent display at the National Museum of Flight in East Fortune from 25 April. It is the only Red Arrows Hawk on display in any UK museum. Built in 1980, the aircraft was used by the Red Arrows from 1985 until 2012.
It will sit alongside Concorde, an aircraft with which the Red Arrows displayed on many occasions, most notably when Concorde and the Red Arrows flew in formation over Edinburgh on 1 July 1999 to mark the opening of the Scottish Parliament.
