THE world-famous Red Arrows are coming to Cleethorpes to provide a spectacular conclusion to the resort's Festival Of Flight.
The Grimsby Telegraph can reveal that the famed RAF aerobatic team is to perform its full display over Cleethorpes seafront on June 10, and bring the town's two-day celebration of the skies to an awe-inspiring close.
As reported, on Saturday and Sunday, June 9 and 10, the skies above the resort will play host to world famous modern-day and historic aircraft, performing breathtaking displays right along the seafront.
Throughout the course of the weekend, a trade village will also be set up along the promenade from Brighton Slipway to Cleethorpes Leisure Centre, to provide visitors with everything from food and refreshments to memorabilia and models.

But undoubtedly, one of the biggest draws will now be the appearance of the Red Arrows – who have performed some 4,000 displays worldwide in over 50 countries.
Adam Johnson, managing director of Cleethorpes Airshow Limited, organisers of the event, said: "There is little doubt that the Red Arrows are the world's leading aircraft display team and it is a great privilege for us to have them attending our first-ever festival of flight to bring it to an exciting close on the Sunday.
"This provides even more of a reason for visitors to come and be a part of this totally free and exciting event and presents businesses with an even greater opportunity to showcase themselves and their products to everyone attending over the weekend."
Leader of North East Lincolnshire Council, Councillor Chris Shaw, said that the event will attract thousands of people to the region.
"It is marvellous news that a world-famous act like the Red Arrows will be performing in Cleethorpes.
"With events like this, the Armed Forces Day and the 1940s Weekend, Cleethorpes will get itself a great reputation for being 'the' place to come for big events and great entertainment.
"This is a marvellous resort and it is clear that organisers are keen to put on some really prestigious, national acts and events. It is a very exciting time for the area and I can't wait to see the Red Arrows' performance."
