The team arrived at the city's airport on Thursday morning, which will continue as their refuelling base on Friday for Clacton Airshow.

The Reds treated onlookers to an impressive flyover as they arrived back to the airport and greeted fans at the gate - signing autographs and taking selfies.

Flight Lieutenant Tom Bould, aged 35, said: 'The best thing about being in the Red Arrows is being part of a team.

'It takes a lot of hard work to get to the point where we can display all nine jets in front of the public .'
