The @VRedArrows got the chance to go toe-to-toe with the world famous Red Arrows yesterday at RAF Scampton.

Their challenge was to see if they could put on a show as good as the real @RAFRedArrows, albeit in cyberspace.

After weeks of uncertainty, the day before a much needed Easter Break, it was fantastic to get back together as a 9-ship with @RAFRed3 slotting into his new role incredibly quickly. @rafredarrows fly as a 9 again. #redarrows. Pic by SAC Hannah Smoker.

The flying programme is coming to a close for today, with sorties supporting Exercise #JointWarrior. Here's one of our #Typhoons being manoeuvred into its hangar by our ground crew. Huge thanks to all at Lossie who have been supporting the Exercise so far!

F-35 aircraft from @RAFMarhamMedia will deploy to @RAFAkrotiri later this year.

This will be the first overseas deployment of the aircraft. It will allow RAF and @RoyalNavy personnel to gain experience in maintaining and flying the aircraft in an unfamiliar environment.

It was a successful first day on #JointWarrior for the Sqn, flying as the Rescue Mission Commander for a JPR mission. Flying the length of the country, the crews worked with other rotary and fixed wing aircraft including F35, Typhoon, RJ and Apache. #NoOrdinaryJob
