Karachiites will be dazzled by UK’s Red Arrows today
Karachiites will be dazzled by UK’s Red Arrows today: The aerobatic team of UK’s Royal Air Force which is commonly known as the Red Arrows, will be performing in Karachi today. The event, being observed to celebrate 70 years of friendship between the United Kingdom and Pakistan, will take place at Sea View Beach around 1:30pm and is open to the public.
The Red Arrows were given their nickname as the training aircraft they use is predominantly red.
The pilots are often the most highly qualified and experienced in the RAF and last year flew in 4,800 displays in 57 countries. It is believed they are touring Pakistan after 20 years.
The team currently flies the BAE Systems Hawk T1 jet and can fly as low as 100 feet and reach speeds of up to 600 miles per hour.
The Red Arrows are currently based at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire and that is where they practise their heart-stopping routines.
Pakistan’s JF-17 Thunder fighter aircraft would also participate in the air show, said a press release by the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) earlier.
“The blue skies of Karachi would turn red with the presence of Royal Air Force team which is famous for its jaw-dropping formation aerobatics,” said the PAF.
The Red Arrows have previously been touring the Gulf countries.
