WATCH: Red Arrows colouring skies in Paris in honour of King’s state visit to France

King Charles and Queen Camilla have attended a ceremony at the Arc de Triomphe as they began a three-day state visit to France yesterday.

They were welcomed by President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, before the King relit the flame at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

The Red Arrows and their French counterparts then flew over Paris.

About Red Arrows:

The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows, is one of the world’s premier aerobatic display teams.
Representing the speed, agility and precision of the Royal Air Force, the team is the public face of the service. They assist in recruiting to the Armed Forces, act as ambassadors for the United Kingdom at home and overseas and promote the best of British.

Flying distinctive Hawk fast-jets, the team is made up of pilots, engineers and essential support staff with frontline, operational experience.
Together, they demonstrate the excellence and capabilities of the Royal Air Force and the Service’s skilled, talented people.

Often with their trademark Diamond Nine shape, and combination of close formations and precision flying, the Red Arrows have been displaying since 1965.
All Red Arrows display pilots have flown operationally, in frontline aircraft such as the advanced Typhoon, and helped the Royal Air Force to secure the skies every day of the year.
Based at RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire, the Red Arrows had flown almost 5,000 displays in 57 countries, by the beginning of 2023 – the team’s 59th season.
